    Seeking records of the Cahaba Civil War Prison Camp Flood

    natalie lovins Wayfarer

      I have been doing some more research, and I found one of my ancestors who was in the Cahaba Prison Camp when it flooded in 1865. I read that they were in water up to their waist for four days in winter. How would that even be possible? Would they be able to sleep? I am interested in knowing more about the flood. I find any little tid-bit interesting. I would appreciate any help that could guide me in the right direction, or know if there is any documentation of the details of this situation, that would be great. Thanks!
