Info from his gr gr gr gr grandson Michael Beaver:
He was a POW in Andersonville, better know as a death camp. Located in Georgia.
Andersonville is a village in Sumter County, Georgia. It was built by the Confederate Army in the winter of 1863-64 to hold Union Prisoners. It was a stockade into which more than 30,000 men were herded at one time. Poor sanitation, lack of medical attendance, and insufficient clothing caused an average of about 950 prisoners to die every month during the 14 months that the prison was in operation. At the close of the Civil War, Capt. Henry Wirz, Condederate commander of the prison, was tried by a military commission for "murder in violation of the laws of war," found guilty and hung on November 10, 1865. A national cemetery now occupies the site of the prison.
