Confederate Prison Narratives


Much has been written over the years concerning the atrocities of the Civil War Prison Camps - especially Andersonville, but the privations suffered by confederate soldiers in Elmira, Camp Chase, Johnsonís Island, and Camp Douglas have been largely ignored. This CD-ROM contains a collection of 12 books in E-BOOK format giving FIRST HAND ACCOUNTS of Confederate Soldiers in yankee prisons. A dozen full length books with personal accounts of life in civil war prisons. All of the major prisons are covered with these first hand accounts, Camp Chase, Elmira, Johnson's Island, plus many of the lesser known camps.
