|Jim's Photo Taken At Andersonville Prison Camp In Georgia|
This story is gross, but in the context of prisoners of war held in the Andersonville Prison in Georgia, it's understandable.
"Capt. Wirtz did not learn what became of his bull dog, nor did the fate of the dog become known to the thousands of prisoners in the stockade."
"In 1917 the writer [Rev. Winfield Scott Sly, Co. H, 132 Ill Inf., of Lansing, Michigan] visited J.H. Barnes, a veteran of the Civil War, having, like the writer, enlisted when he was only fifteen years of age and was captured and sent to Andersonville prison."
J. H. Barnes solved the mystery of the disappearing dog; visit the link, OLD VETERANS STORIES, for the details.
