Product Description

Benson served in the Confederate Army from the first shot at Fort Sumter to the last at Appomattox and during this time he kept a diary of his life and activities. He was captured behind enemy lines while on a scouting mission and was imprisoned at Point Lookout Prison. Within two days, he escaped but was eventually recaptured in Virginia. He would later escape Elmira Prison in New York and joined Lee’s army at Appomattox but refused to surrender; instead he set out to join General Johnson in the last days of the war. This enlisted man’s memoirs provide an intimate picture of army life and show the ingenuity of a scout and sharpshooter.
