No details beyond these are contained in this State Archives record, or any further records OHS holds. Series 87, Civil War, Prisoners of War, Adjutant General, 1864-1865, is arranged roughly in alphabetical order, call no. BV1839 / microfilm roll GR3674. Please note that Series 87 is not a complete list of Ohio prisoners at Andersonville, Georgia, and Salisbury, North Carolina prisons for the period from 1864-1865. OHS was not the compiler of this list and has mounted the information as it appears in the original record. Series 87 was transferred to OHS by the Adjutant General of Ohio. No additions to the list or changes to existing entries are made as these would constitute alterations of the original record.
the Governor and Adjutant General, 1861-1866
