Castle Morgan At Cahaba

There was nothing romantic about Castle Morgan; it was a Prisoner of War camp in Alabama.  Jesse Hawes  (1843-1901) wrote Cahaba, A Story of Captive Boys In Blue, about it.

From the Introduction:  "Incidentally, the pages following are an humble monument to the endurance, the patience, the fortitude, the unswerving loyalty and patriotism of that class of men who, numerically, constituted the great mass of the army--it's non-commissioned officers and privates."
