The Martyrs Who, for Our Country, Gave Up Their Lives in the Prison Pens in Andersonville, Ga (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Martyrs Who, for Our Country, Gave Up Their Lives in the Prison Pens in Andersonville, Ga How men could survive as well as they did in this pen, exposed to the rays of an almost tropical sun by day and drenching dews by night, without the slightest covering, is wonderful. The ground is filled with holes where they had burrowed, in their efforts to shield themselves from the weather, and many a poor fellow, in endeavoring to protect himself in this manner, was smothered to death by the earth falling in upon him. A very worthy man has been appointed superintendent of the grounds and cemetery, with instructions to allow no buildings or structures of whatever nature to be destroyed, particularly the stockade surrounding the prison pen.
