Civil War POW Records
Finding Your Soldier
"It's impossible to research the Civil War era, without reviewing POW records. There were more than 160 prisons holding 647,000 prisoners captured during the Civil War. Many were paroled in the field, but 215,000 Confederate soldiers (and citizens) were held in Union prisons; 26,000 died while being held. Of the 195,000 Union soldiers (and citizens) held in Confederate prisons, 30,000 died while imprisoned. Although some records were destroyed and burials places removed, many records have survived and may be used to locate your Civil War veteran. These records confirm burials, prisoner's exchanges, escapes and more." This lecture is offered to beginning to advanced genealogists.
