Andersonville - A Story of Rebel Military Prisons
The infamous Andersonville prison was only in operation for little more than one year, from 1864 into 1865, but in that short time became the largest city in Georgia and the fifth largest city in the Confederate States of America. It also became America’s deadliest prison. Of the almost forty thousand captured Federal soldiers, thirteen thousand died there. Survivor John McElroy’s Andersonville - A Story of Rebel Military Prisons is a product of his lengthy confinement there. His document is a harrowing eye-witness account of the unspeakable deprivation endured by the inmates of Andersonville.
