    Are there records breaking down Civil War military prison numbers of held, released, & died by years? By locations?

      I am researching Civil War POW issues. I would like to be able to compare the numbers in & out of the military prisons after Francis Lieber's General Orders No. 100 were issued in April 1863. At this point, I only find total numbers for prison for the duration of the war. I would think by now these statistics have been compiled most likely by the War Department.
