Missouri Confederate Deaths in Union Prisons and Their Hospitals

By Carolyn Bartels- Way back in about 1911 or shortly thereafter, the families and the government needed to account for the thousands of missing Confederates who entered Union prisons across the northern states. In the attempt a massive undertaking was embarked upon to account for all these men by the prison journals. The entire journal held some 26,000 names, a far cry from actual deaths. We have extracted the men of Missouri from these records. The listing includes arrangement by name, rank, regiment, company, date of entry, death date and final disposition. Soft-cover. EXCLUDED are Alton and St. Louis; For those see Joanne Eakin, Prisoners of War; Gratiot Street etc.
