In a field where new scholarship is not only recommended but needed, Hesseltine's Civil War Prisons- written seventy-five years ago- remains a standard on the topic. Hesseltine tackles the previous historiography of northern and southern prisons during the American Civil War.

Curiously, the two earlier reviewers, while writing interesting comments, aren't reviewing the book they think they are. They've confused William Hesseltine's 1930 Civil War Prisons: A Study in War Psychology with the slim collection of essays edited by William B. Hesseltine entitled Civil War Prisons. The latter, issued in 1962 and reissued 30 years later by Kent State University Press, is the book they should've reviewed here.

The essays collected in Civil War Prisons all originally appeared in a special issue of the journal "Civil War History." Predictably, they're both enjoyable and rigorously documented. One of them, the article on Andersonville, is also generously illustrated with both line drawings and photographs.

The essays focus on prisons both well-known and not so familiar. Ovid Futch writes on the infamous Andersonville; Minor McLain on Fort Warren, the federal prison on George's Island in Boston Harbor; T.R. Walker on Rock Island Prison on an island in the Mississippi River; Frank Byrne presents an edited version of General Neal Dowl's experiences as a captive in Richmond's Libby Prison; James Robertson's writes on New York's Elmira Prison, a camp so notorious for high death rates that it came to be called "Hellmira"; Edward Downer describes Johnson's Island in Lake Erie; and William Armstrong discusses the remarkable prison diaries of Pennsylvanian Edmund Ryan, captured not once but twice.

The essays describe what we've come to expect from writings on Civil War prison camps: the generally sorry treatment of inmates in terms of food, shelter, clothing, and medical care. Explanations for the treatment range from indifference to revenge to inability to care for massive quantities of prisoners after the parole system broke down. In short, there's nothing in these essays that will surprise readers already somewhat familiar with the vast literature on Civil War prisons. But for those new to the field, this is an excellent place to start.
