The Yankee Plague
- Escaped Union Prisoners and the Collapse of the Confederacy
- By: Lorien Foote
- Narrated by: Traber Burns
- Length: 6 hrs and 54 mins
During the winter of 1864, more than 3,000 Federal prisoners of war escaped from Confederate prison camps into South Carolina and North Carolina, often with the aid of local slaves. Their flight created, in the words of contemporary observers, a "Yankee plague", heralding a grim end to the Confederate cause. Blending rich analysis with an engaging narrative, Foote uses these ragged Union escapees as a lens with which to assess the dying Confederate States, providing a new window into the South's ultimate defeat.
