Written twenty-seven years after the end of the war, this prisoner memoir provides a rare account of a prisoner held at Andersonville during the winter of 1864-65.

The title of the book is derived from the fact that during his imprisonment Smith contracted scurvy, and was confined to a wheelchair for the remainder of his life.
