About this item

The late Citron, who was a chemist and volunteer at Fort Delaware State Park, reexamines the treatment of prisoners of war at Fort Delaware, a major Union prison camp on Pea Patch Island in the Delaware River, as a model of Northern Civil War prisons. Drawing on prisoner diaries and Union Army documents, he discusses the topography and weather of Pea Patch Island; the command structure, personnel, and administration of Fort Delaware; prison camp administration and security; the food ration; the Prison Fund; shelter and clothing; water supply and sanitation; outside help provided to soldiers and prisoners; medical care; death rates; everyday life; and releases.
