This document is the report of a House of Representatives committee which interviewed former prisoners of war and civilians imprisoned by the Confederate States of America during the Civil War. Very much a political document, the report does still contain much material of interest. Beginning on page 787 of the report are transcripts and written statements of Union POWs, telling their own experiences.
