Summary
"So Far from Dixie is the tale of five men who were sent to New York's infamous POW camp, Elmira, and survived to document their stories. Berry Benson promised that he would escape the prison under honorable circumstances. Anthony Keiley charmed Union authorities in to giving him a job at Elmira and later became mayor of Richmond, Virginia. John King refused to build coffins for his fellow prisoners. Marcus Toney refused to take the Union oath of loyalty until long after the war had ended. And Frank Wilkeson, a Union army volunteer only sixteen years old, endured the same humiliating punishment meted out to the prisoners he was guarding."--Jacket
