JOHN HOLLIS  - "How He Lost His Liberty - Some Incidents of Meade's Retirement from Culpepper." CONTINUED

  I was about four days in the rebel army before we were sent to the rear. It surely was a mournful sight the day after we were captured, while going to the rear, to see so many killed and wounded. I was then sent a prisoner to Pemberton and Belle Island Prisons, and then sent to Andersonville, Savannah, Blackshear, Thomasville, and back to Andersonville.
I was released from there on April 17, 1865. I reinlisted in Co. B, 3rd U. S. Cav. I served from July 8, 1862, to July 11, 1868, and I am not drawing a pension either.
