Re: Hart's Island Civil War Prison NY

Glenn--I read with interested that your ancestor, David Land, was captured on the "South Side Railroad" on April 2, 1865. My husband's ancestor, Calvin Sharp, was also captured on the "South Side Railroad, Virginia," April 2, 1865. Confined at Hart's Island, New York Harbor until released on June 18, 1865, after taking the Oath of Allegiance. Calvin was from Rockingham Co, NC, and was a member of Company H, Rockingham Guards. I'm wondering if you have found any information about the South Side Railroad and how many people were captured there? It sounds like Calvin and David may have been together when captured and then taken prisoner to the same place.
