in the Federal prisons was in like round numbers but 220,000; that of the former there were 22,570 deaths, and of the latter 26,436 deaths; a difference in favor of the Confederates of 3,866, notwithstanding the 50,000 excess in our hands. Thus the percentage of deaths in Confederate prisons was about 8 3-10, while that in the Federal prisons was 12, a difference of about 37-10 per cent. in favor of the Confederates. Such, in brief, was the work to which Dr. Moore gave anxious thought and ceaseless labor, and developed and conducted under the most embarrassing and discouraging circumstances to marvelous discipline, efficiency, and resourcefulness.
