While Gen. Sheridan was thus trying to starve the army of General Lee, he was destroying the food that would have gone in part to the prisoners at Andersonville. How was it with our prisoners in the pens and camps in the bleak regions of the North? There could be no possible excuse for starving them, since they were in a land of abundance. No armies has desolated their grain fields; no torches had burned their mills or destroyed their immense storehouses of food. The poor prisoner could look wistfully out from his cheerless pen upon all of this teeming abundance while slowly starving to death. - John Henry King A Private in the 10th Georgia Infantry
