    Seeking records of civilian POW during the Civil War


      Is it possible that a civilian be put into a POW camp during the Civil War? As I hear it, my 2nd Great Grandfather was from the north and was driving a wagon into Virginia from NY and of course there was a battle going on in the area he was traveling in. He was captured by the North and put into a POW camp in Ohio. He was released at a certain point. Where can I look to verify this?  Thank you!
