Drawing 2: The Florence Stockade.

[Drawing 2: The Florence Stockade] with link to larger version of photo.
(From Life and Death in Rebel Prisons,1868, by Robert H. Kellogg)

This map of the Florence Stockade was drawn by Robert H. Kellogg, who was held as a prisoner of war at the Florence Stockade.

Questions for Drawing 2:

1) Locate the stockade walls, the deadlines, the hospital, and the brook. Why do you think the stockade was built with the stream flowing through it? Why might they have wanted streets?

2) The prisoners lived on the east side of the stream. Every day, the guards made them march across the bridge (number 7 on the map) so that they could be counted. Why do you think it was important for the guards to count the prisoners every day?
