About this product
- DescriptionDuring the Civil War, over 30,000 Southern prisoners passed through the gates of Fort Delaware over the course of three years. As with all Civil War prison camps, Fort Delaware gained a reputation for wretched living conditions, and is still called the 'Andersonville of the North' by some historians. Undoubtedly, there were suffering and death at the prison, but a thorough examination reveals a markedly different picture: that of a group of men and women determined t only to survive, but to thrive as well, despite harsh circumstances.
- Author BiographyBruce Mowday, the former managing editor of the Daily Local News of West Chester, Pennsylvania, has written several other books, including September 11, 1777: Washington's Defeat at Brandywine Dooms Philadelphia.
