Re: Hart's Island Civil War Prison NY

It would seem that it was George E. Ballew captured and imprisoned at Hart's Island. Additionally, I found three others sent there from the 14th.

The majority of those captured during this period were sent either to Fort Delaware or Point Lookout.

Either George or his widow applied for a Confederate pension from the state of Georgia ca 1914. These application papers may reveal his sojourn at Hart's Island.
