From the Richmond Examiner, 7/15/1864
THE PRISONERS OF WAR IN RICHMOND number less to-day than at
any time since the first battle of Manassas. All, except the wounded and a few
hundred hostages, robbers and others, who have, by their deeds, placed
themselves beyond the treatment accorded prisoners of war, have been forwarded
to the great central prison at Andersonville, Georgia. The number congested
there is something over thirty thousand.
