One of the most outstanding prison narratives of the American Civil War.

 

Sergeant John Ransom was captured in East Tennessee in November 1863 and escaped near the end of 1864. Ransom was only 20 years old at the time of his capture. He and his fellow prisoners endured lice, starvation, freezing cold, killing heat, theft from other inmates, and more. He discusses his relations with Indians, specifically the Battese, a Minnesota Indian, who is imprisoned as well and helps him escape. Ransom’s narrative stems from his diary written during his time in prison and ends with a list of the Union prisoners who perished at Andersonville. Nevins calls it, “A superior and gripping account.”
