Andersonville Prisoner John W. Urban:
(Sometime after the emissaries returned from Washington)
"We sometimes felt embittered against the Government for not making a greater effort to release us, and among ourselves we often were tempted to say bitter things, but in the presence of our enemy any insinuation of this kind against our own Government would excite ire and indignation. It was a sad fact, however, that hundreds died feeling in their hearts that the Government they loved so well, and fought so hard to save was indifferent to their sad fate."
