Book Talk with Bradley Gottfried and Linda Gottfried

Sunday, November 11, 2018

About the Book The Point Lookout Civil War Prisoner of War Camp for Confederates was the largest facility in the North. This small book takes a fresh look at all aspects of the prison from its formation to its closing and lasting legacy. Loaded with first-person accounts of both Confederate prisoners and Union personnel, the book helps the reader get a vivid picture of what it was like to be incarcerated in the camp. Hell Comes to Southern Maryland: The Story of the Point Lookout Prison and Hammond General Hospital. The topic is particularly appropriate for the Manassas Museum as many Virginia boys were incarcerated there from 1863 through 1865. by Dr. Bradley M. Gottfried (Author), Ms. Linda I Gottfried (Contributor)
