Summary

John Ransom's Civil War Diary : Notes from Inside Andersonville, the Civil War's Most Notorious Prison


''The Civil War produced many diaries, but few as appealing and readable as this one.'' - Publishers Weekly'' An altogether exciting and unique, almost priceless documentary.'' - Library Journal'' A tale of adventure, of suspense from beginning to end, of fierce hate and great love, of the incredible callousness of man and the incredible warmth of man - with the added knowledge that 'it really happened.''' - Bruce Catton John L. Ransom joined the Union Army in 1862, serving as brigade quartermaster of the Ninth Michigan Volunteer Cavalry. A year later, the 20-year-old soldier was captured in Tennessee and interned at the notorious Georgia prison camp, Andersonville. Ransom's harrowing firsthand account of Civil War prison life constitutes a valuable historical record - a true story not only of cruelty, death, and deprivations but also of acts of courage and kindness that ensured the young soldier's survival and preserved his faith in humanity. AUTHOR: John L. Ransom (1843-1919) joined the Union Army in 1862 and served as Quartermaster of Company A, 9th Michigan Volunteer Cavalry.
