Based on the journal of Sergeant Jacob Osborn Coburn, a member of the 6th Michigan Cavalry who was captured at Charles Town, Virginia, Oct. 18, 1863, this firsthand account of the horrors of prison life was sent to his parents by a Union hospital steward after Coburn's death in a prison hospital in Richmond on March 8, 1864; a rare and valuable source for those interested in prison life. -- North & South, The Magazine of Civil War Conflict Lawrence Lee Hewitt November 1998
