oldhal-Civil War/Letter from Union POW paroled from Confed. Prison/Camp Banks
(Click to Enlarge)  Description This is just a fabulous letter. A Union solder from around Gains, NY is writing a letter to his grandmother from Camp Banks Paroled Prisoners , near Alexandria, Va. on Oct 21, 1862. The letter is very hard to read as the writer, Frank Ball writes like a school child. Parts of the letter are as follows. " I had come from that enfurnal hole called BellizIsland Richmond (He means Belle Isle Richmond, a Confederate POW camp in the river near Richmond), thare war about five thousand in all. We ws hardest looking lot of boys, raged, dirty and lousy with lice. " he goes on and talks about receiving blankets and says. " I don't now we look like so many criminals. We took the oath not to take up arms against Southern Confederace until regulary exchanded." They talking about taking up winter quarters up her , that's looks like staying over winter here. I will try to get a furlough . I get payed off I get near four months pay coming (he must have been captured for 4 months..that makes his capture in Jun of 1862), There is a lot more information in the letter if you study it closely. He closes by saying " Send letters to Frank Ball, Camp Banks Paroled Prisoners near Alexandria, va. The way it worked was, prisoners were traded man for man and they were supposed to be out of action for the rest of the War. I'm not sure if this agreement lasted through the War or if it was just in the first couple years of the War. This is an A grade historical document. In checking google there was a question if this Camp Banks even existed . This is proof that it did exist. It was in n envelope mailed from Auburn, NY from B S Ball to Adelia Ball in East Gains, Orleans Co, NY. I would guess B S Ball was the grandfather that Frank Ball was writing to. I would guess that Adelia Ball in East Gains is his sister or mother...just guessing. I am enclosing this letter and envelope also. It is not pictured in the scan.    Payment and Shipping Buyer to pay shipping and handling of $0.75.
