Would like to find a complete list of men held as a POW on Ship Island. Also a list of those who died and are buried on the island.

Thanks,

The link I posted has a list of dead. Not sure if it is complete, but it is from the monument erected by the UDC. A fellow is looking for a Love or Dill who was held as a POW but believed to have escaped. Is it possible you look it up for me???

How much is the book??? How can I order it???

Good deal that you have their records. We can still provide CSRs for active SHAPE members free of charge.

Sounds like they went from the frying pan to the fire by ending up at Hellmira. Most folks talk about the abuses of the south or more specifically Andersonville and at the same time ignore the abuses of Elmira, Douglas and Chase.
