Prison Pens of the North

You’ve heard about the tragedy at Andersonville… but what have you heard about the Confederate POW camps up north during the War in which multiplied thousands of Southerners were intentionally deprived of food, shelter, and medical provisions.  Unlike the situation with the Yankee POW’s at Andersonville, Union troops had more than enough provisions for the Confederate POW’s in their care but intentionally starved thousands to death, sometimes with rations sitting spoiling in warehouses just feet away from the malnourished prisoners.  Learn the truth about the “Prison Pens of the North” in the booklet offered by the Georgia Division.
