LuDi>ow, February 23, 1862.

DD. (See pages 89, 90, 141.)

From detailed accounts of the life and incidents of the stay in An-
dersonville, sent by parties who were there, we are permitted to cull
brief selections : —

From Jasper Harris of Holyoke : — "The brigade including my
regiment (16th Connecticut Volunteers) was captured April 23, 1864,
at Pljnnouth, N. C, and taken en route for Andersonville, where our
rebel guard told us was a splendid, shady camp, with plenty of new
barracks for shelter. We arrived at the Andersonville station at dark on
the evening of Ma}'^ 9. The next morning we were marclied towards
the stockade, a quarter of a mile away. Just before arriving at the main
gate we came to a rise of ground from which could be seen the whole
stockade, and most of the inside of it. I shall never forget the gloomy
and depressed feeling with which I looked on the horrible sight. The



THE LUDLOW 3IAETYRS. 195

high log stockade was composed of straight young pines, cut sixteen
feet long, hewn on two sides, the bark peeled off, and then the log
sunk on end in a trench six feet deep, close together, leaving ten feet
at least above ground on the inside. Cross-pieces were spiked to each
timber horizontally, making a fence strong enough to hold cattle in-
stead of men.

" Eations were issued daily, being drawn into the stockade bj'- a mule
team, and when divided and sub-divided furnished each man a pint
and a-half of cob-meal and from two to four ounces of bacon. For a
few days we received two common-sized sticks of cord-wood to be di-
vided among ninety men.

" Grant's campaign had now commenced and soon more prisoners be-
gan to come in. After a while came the Ludlow boys. The first man
I met was Sergeant Perry, looking every inch a soldier, and in ex-
cellent health. The next w^as Flavins Putnam, a new recruit, captured
in his first battle. I always knew him as being a thoroughly good
man when I lived in Ludlow, and exceedingly strong and quick in
farm work, and always cheerful.

'' If I should attempt to wa-ite a complete description of Andersonville
and its horrors, of Wirtz, his guards and his bloodhounds, and all the
sights and incidents which came under my own eye there and at other
prisons during my eight months' stay, of the murders and robberies
amongst our own men, of the hanging of six of them by a court of our
own men, — it would fill the pages of a large book, while a part would
be descriptive of such monstrous cruelty and so striking to sensitive
minds that I am afraid it would not be believed if written."

From an account by James E. Perry of Adrian, Mich: "Just two
weeks from the time we were captured found us marching into the re-
nowned Andersonville prison pen. When introduced into that foul
den of crime, wretchedness and sorrow, our hearts failed us, and we
made up our minds for the worst, and we would rather have risked our
chance with the regiment even in those bloody battles of the campaign
of 1864. One-third of the men who occupied that vast charnel-pen lie
buried there to-day.

'■' Willie Washburn died August 21, Daniel Pratt, August 22, Eben-
ezer Lyon, September 11, Caleb Crowningshield, September 15, Hiram
Aldrich, the latter part of September, John Coash, during the fall,
Flavins Putnam, some time in September,' Joseph Miller (not from
Ludlow), and Albert Collins of Collins' Depot, during the summer.
Putnam and Coash were admitted to the hosj)ital and died there. I
think it can be truly said that these men died of starvation, for we
received nothing tliat a sick man could relish or eat."
