Cahaba Prison
A Virtual Cemetery created by: Janet
Description: Men re-interred from Cahaba Prison to Marietta National Cemetery. "records indicate that between 142 and 147 men died at Cahaba Prison" (that number may not include men who died at the prison hospital after the prison closed in March 1865) -Cahaba prison... See also: article on Cahaba and Sultana disaster.

In January 1865, Captain Hiram S. Hanchett, of this Regiment [16th Ill Cav], was captured at Mount Pleasant, Tennessee, and taken to the rebel prison at Cahaba, Alabama. There he organized the sixty men he found in prison, systematized a plan of escape, and this band of brave overpowered the guard, broke out and marched for two days, fighting all the while, hoping to reach the river and capture a steamboat on which they might escape. After that struggle, however, there were overpowered and then taken back. A number of the fugitives were killed, but for Captain Hanchett a worse fate was reserved. He was enclosed in a wooden box eight feet square with one aperture, through which his food was passed. Here he remained until the rebels heard General Wilson was coming, and deemed it was best to shift their quarters. Poor Hanchett was, by over a month of this confinement, reduced to too feeble a state to move, and they blew out his brains when they left.
