Was captured with the command at Plymouth, NC April 20, 64 and taken to Andersonville by the way of Charleston and Savannah.  At Charleston a rebel officer got about $150 in greenbacks from us to buy bread; we saw no more of him.  When we were counted off into messes and put in the stockade the sight was sickening; ten thousand prisoners in a condition too horrible for description, without shelter, exposed to the sun and storm, the greater portion of them nearly naked. Add to this the horrors  of disease and starvation, your imagination will still fall below the reality. We never received rations fit to eat, consequently nearly all who were taken sick died. Naked and, starved to mere skeletons, we had to contend with disease in its worse forms--dropsy, fevers, diarrhea, and smallpox. the hospitals provided were always full, amid the streets full of sick men exposed to sun and storm. Men were shot on the slightest provocation, and frequently from wantonness. September 20th the guard shot a man who had been starved to idiocy. Was removed to Florence, Lieutenant Barrett, of the Fifth Georgia, in command. For brutality this man was second to none. I have seen him gather a crowd of prisoners around him and then beat them off with a club, just to show his authority. A pickax was lost in the stockade, for which we were kept on half pint of meal for three days, and then our rations stopped entirely for two more. One day the guard mused themselves by firing­ about fifty shots into the stockade killing and wounding several. Quite a number have been killed and wounded by the guard; one I remember so sick that that he was unable to raise himself off the ground. The guard ordered him to stop his noise. (groaning.) and because he did not quit, shot him thus the head. I saw Lieut. Barrett whip a man with an iron  ramrod until he fainting on the ground. I have seen man dying in all conditions when I was entirely unable to help them in any way; some lying in the sun day after day, dying of starvation; others almost naked, dying from exposure; others starved until they were crazy, dying insane. After we were paroled we were kept four days in an open field with only one days rations. It froze very hard and many were frozen to death. I counted seven one morning lying close to me who were frozen to death during the night (Lt. Barrett arrested, Southern men helped him to escape and sent him to Europe where he remained for about ten years.)
