Robert Kellogg’s ‘Life and Death in Rebel Prisons’ is a rare Civil War account of prisoners of war and conditions of Confederate prisons. According to Nevins,

“A sergeant’s journal of captivity, reworked by the editor; very bitter over deliberate cruelty to prisoners, but also gives facts tending to show the opposite.”

The contents describe prisoners in Andersonville, Atlanta, Millen and Libby prisons, and other notable prisons, as well as descriptions of prison hospitals in the South.

 

In addition to the fascinating contents, this work features impressive full-page engravings of Civil War battle scenes and treatment of prisoners, including one disturbing view of prisoners being hanged by their thumbs – strappado torture!
