Civil War Parole Camps of Annapolis, Maryland
Rebecca Morris, of Anne Arundel Co. Historical Society
FEBRUARY 26, SUNDAY, 3 PM
- In 1862, Annapolis became the main depot on the east coast for Union prisoners released on parole by the Confederacy.
- The camps, and the army regiments stationed in and around the city, changed Annapolis from a sleepy market town to an overcrowded city filled with thieves, murderers, and prostitutes.
- This presentation will discuss the creation of the parole camps and the stories of the men who came there, a fascinating but little known facet of local history in Anne Arundel County.
