National Cemetery - 18 JAN 2008
TW and I visited the SalisburyNationalCemetery
where 11,700 Union soldiers were buried in mass graves…the causalities of
captivity not battle.
Salisbury was the site of a POW camp designed to hold 2,000 troops but ended up
with over 10,000 prisoners in 1864. I don’t remember any of my school history
books teaching me the facts: During the Civil war, twice as many soldiers died
from disease and imprisonment than from battle.
On another note…I found the
house I'd love to own:
If I lived
here, I’d post a sign: “People who live in stone houses shouldn’t throw glass.”
