Record #:
Time spent in a Civil War prisoner of war camp was never pleasant for soldiers on either side. Sigma, the pen name of a Civil War Confederate soldier, recounts one of the few humorous incidents that occurred in a Federal prison camp. It appeared in The Tarboro Southerner on September 11, 1879, and describes the time Confederate soldiers captured the Fort Warren prisoner of war camp in Boston Harbor and held it for twenty-four hours.
