Thank you both to Bill and Mike.
Bill, I have Googled Camp Ford and they do have some terrific photographs and interesting studies online but I have yet to find an archive of reliable records. I think perhaps the county historical society might be a good idea, I was hoping someone here knew what they might have.
Mike, thanks for reminding me about Jamerson. I have seen his name, or variations, mentioned a few times in connection with Camp Ford. And thanks for telling me about Border's Cavalry. You say you have found some prisoner stories, are you working on a book or collection or is there a place these accounts you have located or seen can be read by others?
I think interest in Camp Ford was non-existant after the War, everyone was probably just plain worn out and just wanted to just go home probably so everything was probably pitched. But it looks like interest has been renewed recently so maybe folks that have scattered accounts from guards and prisoners might begin sending copies of their documents to some central archive like the county historical society to build a collection that could help tell a more complete story of both guards and prisoners.
Thanks again Mike and Bill.
