The Germanic States
Jails, Prisons and Prison Camps
All these topics are discussed on this page, including history of the
German states and the Ansbach area, the troops recruitment and journey
to America, organization of the troops, shipboard experiences, camp
followers, prisons and prisoners, cemeteries, etc. A lot of this
is new, or at least I've never seen it before, and very interesting.
I don't know if you could link each topic to a specific paragraph
on the page that addresses it or not, but if you could, that would be
great. Otherwise, just link to the whole page, I guess, or
whatever you think.
