  1. I visited the prison several years ago. My grandfather was a prisoner there from Oct. 1864 to his release in May 1865.
    I received acknowledgement of his being there. He was a Lieutenant in McGeeHee’s Cavalry (Arkansas) and was captured at the Battle of Westport. I am 85 and cannot make the trip back but wish the Museum the best (My father was born in 1873, his father was born in 1831. ) I was able to purchase some books about the prison, if you have others I would be interested in purchasing please let me know. Thank you.

  2. My great-great uncle (Wayland Fuller Dunaway) wrote a book called “Reminiscences of a Rebel” which he detailed his detention at Johnson’s Island.
