In conjunction with the 150th Anniversary of Stoneman's Raid on Salisbury and the end of the Civil War, Historic Salisbury Foundation, Rowan Museum and Salisbury Confederate Prison Association will organize an exhibit which explores the people and emotions connected with this part of America's history.
Salisbury was the location of the only prisoner of war camp in North Carolina during the Civil War. Constructed on 16 acres surrounding a former cotton mill, it was designed to hold 2,500 prisoners, largely comprised of Union Soldiers. Toward the end of the war, over 10,000 men were detained within its stockade. The prison was closed in February 1865, just two months before Union General Stoneman occupied the town.
The exhibit will give a photo and brief background about each soldier - whether prisoner, prison guard or other support troop associated with the Salisbury Prison. It will link their descendant to them, provide a photo/personal context and create a dialogue about what it means to have an ancestor associated with the former prisoner of war camp.
