soldiers story miles o. sherrill elmira prison campsSecond in our series of Elmira Prison Camp diaries

A Soldier's Story, Prison Life and Other Incidents in the War of 1861-1865, Elmira Prison Camp
by Miles O. Sherrill

A beautifully reprinted special edition book published by New York History Review.

Miles O. Sherrill first published his A Soldier's Story in 1904 at the age of 63. He was a young Confederate soldier, and his war journal tells a timeless tale of fresh-faced enthusiasm and patriotism tempered over time by hard work, anguish, and the grueling horrors of warfare. Sherrill was shot and captured at the Spotsylvania Court House, had his leg amputated, and transferred to the Elmira Prison Camp.

Special thanks those in both the North and South, for their dedication to preserving the historical integrity of the Elmira Prison Camp.
