Sinopsis:

Lynn's remarkable and thorough compilation and annotation brings to life the history, the horrors, and the dissolution of Andersonville Prison. Comprised primarily of hundreds of eye-witness accounts (thematically and chronologically arranged), this book emphasizes the struggles of those who survived their incarceration and of those who did not. Never before in Civil War literature has any book about Andersonville stressed the 'sickness' of this human stockyard from a medically trained perspective. Union prisoners died in droves from neglect, malnutrition, disease, and pestilence, and other maladies described herein.

Dr. Lynn portrays, in moving detail, the prisoners' perceptions of the 800 paces from the train depot to the gates of the prison as entering the depths of Hell. The lack of provisions, medical supplies, food and the wherewithal to prepare it, had not only a horrible effect on the inmates, but it frustrated the efforts of some prison officials as well.

About the Author:

Dr. Lynn is an active member of the A.P. Hill Camp of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, the Virginia Historical Society, the Andersonville Society, the Richmond Civil War Round Table, the Confederate Stamp Alliance, and he is a fellow in the Company of Military Historians.
