Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
One Civil War document (ADS), description of Camp Chase Prison, No. 3, Columbus, Ohio, by A. Davis, 1862. Davis notes that inmates come from all walks of life, including farmers, lawyers, doctors, judges, criminals, sheriffs, gamblers, painters, singers, and surveyors. "A ramble through this city prison would present scenes of card playing and praying, earnest talking, deep arguments obscene jesting and profane swearing. The same walk show some writhing in pain. Others cooking and eating, some trading and perhaps a man dying."
