The URL for looking up Civil War Prisoners of War at the Andersonville Prison in Macon Co, GA. follows: Andersonville Prisoners of War http://www.maconcountyga.org/
There were two POLSTONs who were imprisoned there. The information on them is given below. The Code numbers indicate that both men did survive their imprisonment. This particular prison camp was notorious for starving the prisoners to death! Few of its prisoners survived. The ones who did survive, looked like walking corpses, not unlike the victims of the Holocaust.
I have no other information on either of these individuals. If anyone does, please email me, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
