        Rock Island Rebels, c. 1863 | A State Divided

        Prisoners were taken on both sides of the Civil War. Conditions at prison camps were very poor. Men at prison camps suffered from disease, hunger, and exposure. Many were killed trying to escape. Some prisoners were mistreated or killed for revenge. The Confederate prisoners in this photograph were at Rock Island Prison in Illinois.

        This resource is part of the A State Divided: Exploring the Civil War Through Images collection.
