Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788424521, Paperback)

Walter. More than 500 confederate soldiers are buried in Cypress Hills National Cemetery in Brooklyn and Queens Counties, part of the City of New York. All of these men died while being held as prisoners of war in the New York Area. Their stories deserve to be recounted.

Mr. Walter has breathed life into more than 500 Confederate POWs via brief summaries of their military careers gleaned primarily through research with the Consolidated Service Records at the National Archives. He has also compiled a list which provides the correct names and/or units of those for whom the cemetery records are in error, the causes of their death and dates of death.

Appendices, a bibliography and a fullname index of individuals for whom biographies do not exist, enhance this work. Anyone interested in the Civil War or New York history will want to add this volume to their library.

John Walter, founder of the Institute for Civil War Research, is a professional genealogist and research historian. He specializes in military genealogy and New York City records. 2003, 5.5 x 8.5, append., bibl., index, paper, 228 pp.
