Elmira Prison Camp OnLine Library –

Submitted Information - Union Index - Union Officer Listing

Due to the nature of this research, few submissions are made for Union soldiers. However, this section needs some growth. Please use the Submission page to send in information on your Union ancestor who served their duty at Elmira.

While the background of the men listed below is varied, many of them share two things in common: they each had a part in the great human tragedy that is known as Elmira, and they were able to leave that experience behind and accomplish great things with their post-war lives.

This section of the Library will deal with the lives of the men who ran the camp at Elmira. It will focus on those who were involved in the camp on a day-to-day basis and on those who ran things from Washington.
