    Description

    Interior Carte-De-Visite View of Camp Elmira New York Prisoner Of War Camp With Federal Garrison In Formation. Great interior view of this famous Federal prison camp for Confederate prisoners in Elmira, N. Y. Depicts the Federal Guard garrison in formation on the parade ground. The parade ground is surrounded by the plain clapboard buildings that housed the prisoners. ID on verso with date of October 1864 and ink ID as "Prisoners of War / Camp Elmira, N. Y." This is actually incorrect as the troops are actually the Federal garrison, not the prisoners. Pristine quality, about perfect condition. Scarce image.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
