FIRST EDITION. This monograph includes four detailed and dramatic engravings based upon photographs of Union soldiers who were emaciated following imprisonment at Belle Isle. Much of this volume relates to the medical condition of the prisoners. The contributors include Dorothea Dix and several military surgeons, including William Ely, G. B. Parker, and J. Woodbridge, among others. Mott's commission was charged with "ascertaining, by inquiry and investigation, the true physical condition of prisoners, recently discharged by exchange, from confinement at Richmond and elsewhere, with in the Rebel lines; whether they did, in fact, during such confinement, suffer materially from want of food, or from its defective quality, or from other privations, or sources of disease; and whether their privations and sufferings were designedly inflicted on them by military or other authority of the Rebel Government, or were due to causes which such authorities could not control. And that the gentleman above named be requested to visit such camps of paroled or discharged prisoners as may be accessible to them, and to take, in writing, the depositions of so many of such prisoners as may enable them to arrive at accurate results."
