Pennsylvania Quaker in Andersonville based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This book was printed in limited quantities for the Quaker community after the Civil War. Charles Smedley could have served in a non-combat position, however, he chose to fight with the 90th Pennsylvania Volunteers. Smedley was captured during the Battle of the Wilderness, and imprisoned at Andersonville. He remained in captivity until Sherman began his march to the sea. Smedley was transferred to the Confederate Stockade at Florence, SC, where he died within days of confinement. This book is a great addition to anyone's Civil War Library, as Smedley's journal entries about Andersonville were truely unbiased. Recommended for anyone with an interest in the Civil War, Quakers and prison camps.
