Union Prisoners at Salisbury, NC

Title

Union Prisoners at Salisbury, NC

Description

This picture is of supposedly the first game of baseball played in the south. It was played at Salisbury on a plot of land that was not walled off. It proves that the conditions before the failure of the exchange were favorable and not as bad as they seemed.
