Goodale of Co. C 3rd Iowa Infantry 10th Det. 2nd Mess. datelined "Prisoners Camp Florence S.C. Oct 3d 64" to his mother begins "I was taken prisoner 3d of July, am in very good health...", the cover was probably taken from Florence by CSA military courier to Hilton Head SC to be exchanged by flag of truce via Port Royal; accompanied by response letter from soldier's mother datelined "National, Nov 25th 1864" and addressed to him at Florence, this cover has no postal markings, contained $5 and mentions a box of provisions was sent; lot also includes the civil war journal of Private Charles C. Goodall which chronicles his military service time of May 5-Dec 25, 1864 when he was exchanged (accompanied by typed version which was created 25 yrs afterward).rnThe Florence Stockade was built and became operational in September 1864, and was in use during the final fall and winter of the war. During its time of operation, anywhere from 15,000 to 18,000 captives were held there. The need for additional prisons became imperative after General Sherman captured Atlanta on September 1, 1864. Andersonville prison in south Georgia was thought to be in the path of Sherman and the Confederate prison authorities determined to relocate the approximately 30,000 Union prisoners then at Andersonville. Because Florence had three railroads and was thought to be secure, it was chosen as a site for a newly constructed prison. To keep the Union soldiers in order during relocation, they were told that they were to be paroled. Many of those who were unable to walk or not stable enough to travel were left behind in Andersonville. Of the total number of prisoners that passed through the Florence Stockade, 2,802 Union soldiers died there and most were buried in unmarked trenches in what would become the Florence National Cemetery after the war.rn (Image 1) (Image 2) (Image 3)
