    Seeking records of Ft. Leavenworth prison

    Gene Dickinson Newbie

      How do I determine why a person was incarcerated at Ft. Leavenworth, and died there in 1865? How can I find court records of a prisoner at Ft. Leavenworth prior to 1865?  I know that he died and is buried there.  But I would like to know why he was there, what he did to get there, when he got there.....  I know he died there 04 Jan 1865 and was a civilian prisoner.  Where was he from?
