Six Hundred Released Union Officers
Annapolis, Md., Monday, March 6, 1865.
The Steamers Fairbanks, Utopia, Thames, and Cumberland arrived here yesterday from Wilmington, N. C. loaded with released Union prisoners, recently exchanged. Others are hourly expected.
These prisoners tell the same sad tale of privation, exposure, filth and wretchedness of the Southern prisons. But they are generally in much better condition than those who have come home before them, and after a thorough wash and renovation of clothing, present quite a lively and cheerful appearance. Their fresh blue uniforms and overcoats give to the camps and hospital grounds quite an animated aspect.
The officers from Pennsylvania are listed below:
