Civil War Prisons: A Study in War Psychology

Civil War Prisons: A Study in War Psychology

by William B. Hesseltine

Editorial Reviews

Reprint of the 1930s volume of the same name. Hesseltine (1902- 1963) examines the prisons and prison camps in both the North and the South. He argues that, contrary to popular myth, the North shared responsibility with the South for the poor treatment of prisoners during the war. Also discussed is the prisoner exchange cartel that was in operation from July 1862 until the end of 1863 and the worsening of POW conditions after its collapse.
