A list of the Union soldiers buried at Andersonville
Published in 1866, this report provides a list of the dead at Andersonville, taken from Dorence Atwater's secret copy of the official Conderderate records.
Dorence, a prisoner held at Andersonville for eleven months, spent much of his time held at the prison as a paroled prisoner, working in the hospital office as a clerk. It was in this capacity that he made a secret copy of the death register. He and Clara Barton accompanied the Army expedition to Andersonvill in the summer of 1865.
