Civil War Breakout: Great Escapes
Civil War, 1863. Union soldiers Colonel Thomas Rose and Major A.G. Hamilton were captured by the Confederate Army and sent to one of the most horrific prisons ever run—Libby Prison. Infamous for its harsh, overcrowded, and vermin-infested conditions, many soldiers entered Libby but very few left alive. However, Rose and Hamilton were determined to escape.
