Item Details
Description
For your consideration is this Rare 1865 First Edition of, “Life and Death in Rebel Prisons” by Robert H. Kellogg. A rare illustrated US Civil War book that gives the complete history of the inhumane and barbarous treatment of Union soldiers by Confederate authorities. This powerful book gives an account of the terrible suffering and frightful mortality inflicted upon soldiers, principally at Andersonville, GA., and Florence, S.C. Included in the history are descriptions of plans of escape, arrival of prisoners, and numerous and varied incidents and anecdotes of prison life. Robert H. Kellogg was a Sergeant-Major with the 16th Regiment Connecticut Volunteers and very acquainted with Andersonville prison as he was interned there from April 1864 until the end of the war. Kellogg made it his personal mission to document every day that he was in the prison whether it was about food rations or prisoners deaths. The “mere walking skeletons covered in filth and vermin” would be his fate for the next year. The lucky prisoners, like Kellogg and other men from Connecticut, were able to live through Andersonville imprisonment but they would never forget the treatment they received by the Southerners at Andersonville. The survivors of the prison had the haunting reminders of all the men that would never get to leave the prison grounds.This book is in truly amazing condition given its almost 160 years of age! The brown cloth bound textured and stamped gold gilt covers and spine are in good condition, some fading with scuffing on the edges and and slight tears on the spine. The intact pages have age tanning and foxing throughout, frontispiece illustrations have slight tears. No other obvious damages noted, measures 4.5"W x 7.5"L x 1.25"D
