I thought I would add this information to the topic.
Camp Oglethorpe in Macon, Georgia.
Camp Oglethorpe prison was used to confine Union Military Officers during
the last full year of the Civil War, 1864. The officers survived well. No
ill treatment was noted by the over 1600 officers confined at Macon. Only
one officer was shot and killed by a Confederate sentinel for crossing the
deadline. The camp was located south of Macon on a sandy incline formally
used as the county fairgrounds. Shelter was provided for the Union
prisoners as well as water and wood for heating. The old floral hall, a
one-story frame building located in the center of the fairgrounds, was used
to house 200 men. A stockade 16-feet high and similar in contruction to the
Andersonville stockade surrounded the inclosure. A raid of Macon in late
July by General Stonemans Cavalry persuaded Confederate authorities to
remove prisoners from Macon to Charleston and Savannah. By the end of
September, 1864 the prison virtually ceased operation.
