This is our photo of Ed Chatfield's personal copy
of Thomas O'Dea famous Lithograph
of the Andersonville
prison camp. Large (39.5" x 60") and detailed, O'Dea crafted a bird's eye view of Georgia's infamous civil war prison at the
close of the war. Both O'Dea and Chatfield survived Andersonville.
We gifted this historic treasure to the Kankakee
enabling its ongoing protection, preservation, and viewing. Featuring Soldier Stories of the Civil War,
the Kankakee Museum is just a few miles from where
Chatfield enlisted back in 1862.
Andersonville plus three other Confederate prisons
Edward was imprisoned in three more prisons before he escaped.
