Confederate States Military Prison at Salisbury, NC

A. W. Mangum

While going through local 19th century newspapers online, I came across this two-installment article written in 1893 by Rev. Dr. A. W. Mangum about his time spent at the Salisbury Confederate Prison. The article carried so much information, it was surprising it had never been reprinted.

These articles led me to search in the Official Records for more information about the Salisbury Prison. There I found an extensive letter on the horrific conditions of the Salisbury Prison written February 17, 1865, by T. W. Hall, Assistant Adjutant and Inspector General. This letter is included at the end of this book.
