    Camp Sorghum The nickname of a Southern stockade at Columbia, South Carolina. Union prisoners complained at being given sorghum syrup with which to sweeten their food, but conditions here never approached those of the most notorious prison camps of the war,North or South.

    From: "Webb Garrison's Civil War Dictionary" by Webb Garrison Sr. page 62.
