The Later Generations

"If you are able, save for them a place inside of you and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go. Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may or may not have always. Take what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own. And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind."

~Civil War~

It has been said that,
"...the first armed skirmish of the Civil War.."
occurred in Alton, Illinois.

Andersonville Prison: Flanders
Union Prisoners @ Andersonville

ANDERSONVILLE PRISON; Or CAMP SUMTER as it was officially known, was one of the largest of many Confederate military prisons established during the Civil War. During the 14 months that the prison existed, more than 45,000 Union Soldiers were confined there. Of these, almost 13,000 died from disease, poor sanitation, malnutrition, overcrowding, or exposure to the elements. Available shelter was reduced to crude shelters, huts made of scrap wood, tent fragments or simple holes dug in the ground. Many had no shelter of any kind against the elements. No clothing was provided and many prisoners were left with rags or nothing at all.

A prison for enlisted soldiers, it was designed to hold 10,000 but by August, 1864, the prison population had swelled to over 32,000. With these unspeakable miserable conditions, almost 30 percent of the prisoners died during it's 14 month existance.
