Overview

What would it take for you to survive? A question not asked of many anymore yet during a time in which war had become what was considered exceptionable this is what mattered the most. Would you be willing to let your friends die in such inhuman ways just so you could have something to eat the next morning? or would you agree to work with your sworn enemy just so you could fish for scraps from them. This is an all too familiar story for Henry M. Cline with the many daily exploits he was forced to endure while imprisoned at the now infamous Andersonville prison. This story follows these struggles that he had to endure from the deaths of his close friends, to losing all that he had associated with being human and reverting back to such primal instincts just to insure his own survival. His tale is like many others who had to bare the weight of such brutality. A brutality matched on both sides as men forged from the same inalienable rights come to fight over the ideals of a nation and failing to see what their cruelty and other misgivings have done to men living in rebel prisons.
