THE TRUTH OF HISTORY.
EXPERIENCE OF A CAROLINA SOL
DIER IN A YANKEE PRISON.
Recollection4 of PrIson Life at Point
Lookout, Mld-When You Hear of Out
ragen on Union Prisoners by Coufeder
ates Remember this.
The Rev. J. 13. Traywick, a member
of the South Carolina Conference of
the Southern Methodist Church writes
as follows to the 1'rosperity Press afnd
As the question as to the comparative
treatment of prisoners in Northern and
Southern prisons is tip, and as you
have requested me. I will give below
soime incidents of my experience at
Point Lookout, Md. It will certainly
show that all the sinners were not in
charge of Southern prisons. There is
one fact I wish to note, and that is thet
men at the front, as a ruile, were kind
and thoughtful of our comfort, and, on
the other hand, men who had stayed
all the while away from the front were,
as a rule, without much sympathy.
I was captured at Fisher's Gap, near
Strasburg. on September 22, 186 1. Af
ter some delay at Winchester, Ilarper's
Ferry aud Baltimore, I was carried by
steamer to Point JLookout, Md, arriving
there on Octiber :3, 18i1.
Oil entering the prison we were di
vested of everything except personal
wear and blankets. Not long after outr
arrival in inspection was held, and ii
every case where prisoners had mor(
than one blanket, unless concealed
they were all taken except one to eact
Man, and then those who did not havi
any were supplied with baukets thal
had been taken from their fellow pris
oners. Barefooted prisoners were sup
plied with shoes, and a scant quantiti
of clothing was given to the most des

leaked. The rations as to quamlityS were
ate a rule, go:(l. l'ork two out of thre(
days, the third day beef, but occasion.
ally t,u ribs of beef were roind, whicli
Showed that it was )uitle eel. Iun
gry prisoners ate it, all the same. T,he
bread was served in pound loaves daily
oie loaf to be dlivided between two
Irisoners--it was short weight. A pint
Cp of sou) went, with each loaf ot
bre-d. Two da. s' rations were issued
on Saturday, antI so small was thV
Iuantity that iuvn fre<iuently ate all
giv.en at one tiitue.
The ration for a day was about sitii
cient for a well man one meal. It was
saidl by te prison authorities to he one
half rtLion, allowing three meals per
day. I would consider it, one third
ration a day. The pork was v,ery fat
and always boiled. The prisoners never
got the lard that came out of the itpork,
and it was comimonly reported that the
provost marshal and other oficers Iherc
realized a vast amount from the sale of
this grease to soap makers and lard re
liners. The wtater used by the prison
ers was mitner,al, giving tihe st harpest, ot
appetites with so lt,tlie to eat. ()ill

w~as assistant priovost marshal. These
were kindl and considerate oflicers, but
ihe formuer nev r was b)roughit ini con
tact with the prilsoners. They were
tinder the Iimediate charge of the pro
yost marshal, Mlajor lirady, of New~
Y ork State. iIe was a shierwdl inain of
powvem f'ul adm inistrativye abilities, but1
withal a crutel, heartless man. Ilis
wh'1ole conduct toward the prisoniers
imtpressed mc that he enjoyed tw(
things Immensely. First, the suff'ering
andl humIliation of thte prisoners:
secondIly, the fact that lie wvas their dIes
TIhie prison was enclosedi by a strong
stockade of heavy plank four'teen feet
high. Flour feet from the top otn the
outside was a parapet extending atj
arotud. On this the guards walked by
day and night. TIhey were all negroes
commnandled by white tificers. The
night police inside the prison we're ne
groes, bitt their barbarity was so great
that through the earnest, enitreaties of
the prisoners they were remov'ed sonie
time ini January, 186i5- I recollect one
sick man who had not bieen carriedl to
the htosp)ital. IIis complaint caused himi
to leave his tent about 3 o'clock a. m.
While out ho was set on by a large ne
gro gutardl w~ho dlouble-quticked him, it
his ntight clothes and weak condition,
tip and dlown the street between the
tents for an hour. Wheni the brute or'
(dered the sick man back to hIs tent he
made fifteen other prisoniers come out
in their night clothes and(Irut up andit
downt like a herd of' cattle.

TJhie greatest cruelty perpet ratedi
while I was ini prison was on tnirty in
mates of one of the cook houses. At
the side of' the prison, next to the gate,
was located a numiber' of long cookt and
'eating houses where all the cooking ex
cept baking w~as (lone. Thtere was only
a street or roadway betweeni these
hotnsn andtt the stockade where the
guards walked continually. Between
two of those house.,, a little nearer one
tItan the other, onte of the n agro guards
fell from the p)arapet amnd was found
dead. A contusiont was ott his head
and a p)iece of brick near him. Th'ils
discovery .took lplace about sunset. No
onte saw him whlen lie fell. No on a
who lilt him. TJhe following night after
taps, when every prisotner was im bed, a
ille of soldie0rs rushed into the nearest
cook house to the scene and hutrried the
thirty-two inmates out in the night.
The weather was intensely cold-ther.
mometer below zero. They had on
nothing but shl;t and1( drawers- -two of
them had on socks. Trhey were p)laced
in a block house, which had a (door and
a hole a few inches wilde, withouat food,
water or fire. They were told that onie
of them killed the negro guard, possi1
bly all of them knew or It, and when
the fact was so made known then all
the others could sro back to their quar
ters, but if they did not come out and
confess who killed the guard that the
day following the next had been fixed as
the time when all thirty-two of them
would bie shot. 8o in that bitter weath
er these Innocent, helpless men (not all
men, for t wo of them were boys) passed
that fearful night and next day in the
block building, where they were con
tinually jeered at through the little
window *>y the negro guards who were
off duty, they tolling the suffering pris
oners how delighted they would be to
SQfn them shot.
INNOCENT PRISONEMS TO BE EXECU
The awful hours rolled on, another
night of in(escribable sufft ring passed
away, anid the day of exenution has
come. To many of thoie men a
(fIlicl< (EatIx was to be prefvrred t,o the
slow and cr1el delth they were thwn
passing. The hour for the execution
arrives. All the troops, mostly negroes,
ol' guard on the Point vere formed int o
the hollow sqiuare. The thirty-two ul
most naked, treezing,starving ien were
marched out into line in the hollow
square. Major Brady, with the audaci
ty of the wolf before eatirg the lamb,
proceeded to ask each man if he k new
who killed the guard. As hI proceedud
he received a positive 1no from the he
roic boys first and then fromti the Lrave
men. lie had not gone far, however,
when an alarm was heard in the diree
tion of the gate. Four or live men
were seen coming on horseback at full
speed and yelling at the tOl) of their
voices. It was an ollicor who had
found a young man, a prisoner and
employee in the next cook house, who
could tell thei something about who
killed the guard.

litt we mutist go back on1. day inl tih
narrative. 1)uring that day of cruel
mockings there was one kind man Vh
visited the suffering prisoners. 11
was a commissioned oflicer and a Ma
son. Among the thirty-two prisonere
there was but one Mason. and he gav(
a signal %Ich will stir the deepesl
emotions of a brother. This ollicer los'

the cause of thm death of the guard
Major Brady, uifeeling monster as lh
was, at tempted to find out the c.illse ill
torturing innocent men.
