From the Richmond Examiner, 7/15/1864
TO GO TO SALISBURY. - A large number of a particular class
of prisoners confined in Castle Thunder are to be forwarded to Salisbury, North
Carolina, in a few days, as soon as a proper classification of them can be made.
This exodus will relieve the prison of several hundred inmates, and leave more
food for the consumption of the city’s defenders and the citizens.
