Diary of 1st Sergeant John L. Ransom: March 21, 1864

Prison gradually filling up with forlorn looking creatures. Wood is being burned up gradually. Have taken in my old acquaintance and a member of my own company “A” 9th Mich. Cavalry, Wm. B. Rowe Sergt. Rowe is a tall, straight, dark complexioned man, about thirty five years old. He was captured while carrying dispatches from Knoxville to Gen Burnside, Has been the prisoner two or three months, and was in Pemertou building until sent here. He is a tough, able bodied man. Every day I find new Michigan men, some of them old acquaintances.
