Article from the 'Confederate Veteran' mag., dated April, 1929.
PROUD OF HIS RECORD- TAM GEORGE of Mayfield, Ky., sends renewal of his subscription, which dates from the beginning of the 'Veteran' and writes;
" I was a prisoner of war at Camp Morton, Indianapolis, Ind., during the winter of 1864-65 and was released from that prison on June 12, 1865. I was just a boy, did not have a coat on my back nor a sock on my feet nor a change of clothing during that long cold winter of 1864-65. We were freezing to death, starving to death and the lice were literally eating us up. I could have taken the oath and been released, but I refused, and that has now become the proudest act of my life. I should be glad to get in communication with some veteran who was confined in that same prison in that winter. I was known on the prison rolls as TAM GEORGE."
