In Andersonville Prison Pen alone over 11,000 soldiers of the 33,000 died of starvation, exposure and consumption or other disease. Warren Lee Goss, a member of the 2nd Massachusetts Regiment of Heavy Artillery during the war. In “The Soldier’s Story” Goss writes of his captivity at Andersonville and Belle Isle prisons.
