My regiment, the Fifty-second Pennsyl

under General Footer to get p.ss, ssiou of
James Island in Churlestou hirbjr; the
attack failed, and about 11 of us Who
landed were either killed or captured. It
w as the morning of July Ii, lstil, that we
walked luto the Confederacy over the par

tue first of the following March that I was
privileged to shuke the uniduiutauce thus
hastily and rashly formed.
We were taken over to Charleston dur

through the part of ibe city Which was
exposed to our guru on Morris Iland to
the city prison. On our way we were
subjected to all sorts of taunts and chaf
flug and sometimes could not refrain from
replying in kind. The hatred felt for us
was plainly shown. We were taken into
th" jail yard and iu the afteruoou fur
nished a lubful of boiled musu aud somu
bacon; very few partook of it, but after
ward 1 wished for an opportunity to at
tack the second tub. The ileus in tho
prison were driven away by hce iu over
whelming numbers who took possession of
ES ROUTE TO PRISON" PEN.
On the morning of the sixth we were re
moved from the Charleston prison and put
aboard the cars for Andersonville. Forty
or fifty of us were packed iu each box cur
with one door closed and four guards
watching the other exit. At Augusta,
John Hupp bought a ijuurt of iu:u und
divided It among Brennan, Beavers and
myself. We were a thirsty lot ami tired,
and the millt, like its prlce-t'2 per 'luurt
whs beyond description.
At Macon we were separated from our
ofVeri. who I believe were left there, and
we went on. Colonel Hoyt escaped shortly
after and within light of our guuboats on
the Edisto river was treed by dogs and re
captured. We arrived nt Andersonville on tho
morning of July 8 and were allowe I to re
tain all snms of money les than $100. It
was at this time I first saw Captain Henri
Wirz, made fumous.or infamous rather, by
his administration a commandant of An
dersonville prison. He was a little, weazened
specimen of man aud res-mblrd a skye
terrler, though the companion is unfair to
the dcg. lie was utterly heartless and
held his position for that reason, by the
full knowledge and purpose of his super

We coon came to a point overlooking
the stockade and the sight of the Inside of
the prison below us was stunniug and dis
heartening. It resembled (in imuieam
ant-hill teeming with life. There were
about 2o,0G0 prisoners there at the lime,
and that mass swurailng and moving
about over tho face of the prison bore out
the ant resoaiblance very strongly. It

this feature having been made by the

was shown by a fence about throe feet
high, running around the insido of the
stocknde about a rod within it-, limits:
but in all placeB where it was or should
have been, the penalty was death for
crossing or leaning on it. As soon as n
prisoner unwittingly crossed the dead
line, he was shot down, some times nt
twe'nfv feet distance, and released from

death in this way.
