United States 1861-68 Issues
1865 3c rose, tied by a Circle of Wedges cancel on cover from New York City, addressed to a CSA Prisoner of War, James M. Morey, Harts Island, NY Harbor Prison Camp 27 (period docketing dates the cover to 1865). In 1865, as the Civil War was ending, the Federal government used the Island as a prison camp for Confederate soldiers, for four months in 1865. Of the 3,413 captured Confederate soldiers, 235 died. This final POW camp, located on Long Island Sound about twenty miles north of the city wasn't even used until April 1865, the month the Civil War came to an end. Within the four months of its operation, nearly 7 percent of the camp's POWs died. Only 22 covers are reported from this prison; all are from the Morey correspondence (James M. Morey (1844-1923), was captured at Orangeburg, S.C., sent to Harts Island Prison on April 10th and released on June 14th)
