Largely neglected by historians, the story of the Union POW camp at the entrance of the Delaware River is finally investigated. Concentrating on the conditions of prisoners and guards alike, Temple recounts the commanding general's largely failed efforts to keep the prison clean and to keep the prisoners fed at this camp known by some as the Andersonville of the North.
