Publisher's Summary

This narrative of prison life differs from all others that I have seen, in that it is careful to put the best possible construction upon the treatment of Union prisoners by the Confederates, and to state and emphasize kindnesses and courtesies received by us from them.

For the accuracy of the facts stated, I am indebted to a diary kept from day to day during the whole of my imprisonment and to the best obtainable records. The exact language of conversations cannot, of course, always be remembered, but I aim always to give correctly the substance.
