“Reception of Confederate prisoners at the Federal prison, Elmira, N. Y. The prison at Elmira, N. Y., was finely situated on an excellent piece of ground about a mile from Elmira, and though entirely closed, the prisoners were not deprived of a view of external nature, for on one side rose pine-clad hills high up into the air, visible from all parts of the prison. The prisoners were all provided with bunks in the same kind of rough barrack as were used for sheltering our own men at the various places of rendezvous before going into the field."— Frank Leslie, 1896
