A comprehensive record of South Carolinians imprisoned during the Civil War After more than fifteen years of research, Randolph W. Kirkland, Jr. has identified more than 11,219 South Carolinians imprisoned by Federal forces as a result of their service to the Confederacy. Drawn from more than 200 sources, Kirkland's alphabetical list includes the individuals' names, ranks, units, location of capture and imprisonment, date of transfer, and final disposition. Kirkland also reveals that a total of 1,273 South Carolinians died of disease, malnutrition, and exposure during their imprisonment. This exhaustive study concludes with appendixes that provide additional vital information and statistics, such as details on 332 unlucky men who were captured twice and six others who were taken three times. A complement to Kirkland's Broken Fortunes: South Carolina Soldiers, Sailors, and Citizens Who Died in the Service of Their Country and State in the War for Southern Independence, 1861-1865, this oversized volume is an invaluable resource for Civil War researchers, genealogists, and local historians.
