Really fun, moving book about Junius Browne and Albert Richardson, two reporters for the New York Tribune who were captured by Confederate troops during the Civil War and spent almost two years as prisoners in various Southern prisons until finally escaping in 1864. The most interesting part to me was their escape from Salisbury prison in North Carolina and flight north and west through the mountains of Tennessee. I hadn't realized that so many residents of the mountain country were opposed to the Confederacy. It was really moving to read about the enslaved people and guerillas that aided the men in their escape northward. ( )

Two newspaper reporters go to cover a Civil War battle and find themselves arrested and thrown into a Confederate prison. And then transferred to a few more. The conditions were terrible but what really makes this so readable is the buoyant spirits of Albert and Junius. They had a real sense of humor, and it shows in their correspondence and diary entries. It was also a change of pace to read about the journalists, spouses, draft-dodgers, and other civilians whose lives were disrupted by a war they weren't fighting. Definitely recommended. ( )

Anson Mount challenged us to read this book by June 1st for a semi book club. Excellent read about the Confederacy prison. ( )

This well-written picaresque of the Civil War combines the best of storytelling and research, tracing the saga of two Northern reporters who are captured while trying to reach the South in order to provide coverage of an upcoming battle. Their imprisonment takes them to several different prisons over the space of nearly two years, with deteriorating conditions to the point of near death. The author quotes extensively from their letters and other primary sources, but still keeps the adventure moving along at a fast clip, giving readers a depth of understanding of what Junius and Albert's lives must have been like.

Very, Very Interesting

Do not buy this book if you are looking for suspense, but it is such an excellently written slice of history that even if you aren’t a history buff, you will enjoy this book. The true story of these two reporters reveals a side of the confederacy that most of us Southerners, or any Americans for that matter, don’t wish to acknowledge. I frequently wonder what the Germans think about their actions during WWII, but the way that the prisoners were treated in the Confederacy was shockingly bad. It makes you realize that we are not too many years removed from actions occurring around the world today.

I recommend this to anyone interested in stretching his mind about American history. I would also like to point out that this would make an excellent addition to a history classroom. It is not difficult to read, although my Kindle dictionary helped with some of the older terms, but it would allow students to glimpse a view of life during the American Civil War that they might not otherwise garner.
