Andersonville (Civil War Classics)
A Story of Rebel Military Prisons
To commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the end of the Civil War, Diversion Books is publishing seminal works of the era: stories told by the men and women who led, who fought, and who lived in an America that had come apart at the seams.
For men who endured the horrors of the Civil War, Andersonville Prison represented an even more terrifying level of hell. The prisoners starved while disease ran rampant. John McElroy was captured in battle and transferred to Andersonville. This is his eye-opening, bestselling account of his imprisonment in a place where one of every four men died.
