The prisoners' memoirs, or Dartmoor Prison:

Containing a complete and impartial history of the entire captivity of the Americans

by

Charles Andrews

New York: The Author (1852) 152pp.

Index prepared by Michael Steer

Prison Dartmoor is located in Princetown and is owned by the Duchy of Cornwall. Constructed originally between 1806 and 1809 by local labour, to hold prisoners of the Napoleonic Wars, it was also used to hold American prisoners from the War of 1812. Although that war ended with the Treaty of Ghent in December 1814, many American prisoners of war still remained in Dartmoor. On April 6, 1815, seven of them were killed and 31 wounded when guards opened fire at the behest of the allegedly drunk British officer in charge, who thought that they were attempting to escape. A memorial to the 271 POWs (mostly seamen) who are buried in the prison grounds has since been erected. Surname lists also identify prisoner hometowns and the ships on which they served. An original copy of the text is held at the University of Michigan Library. It was digitised 7 May, 2007 and can be downloaded via the search engine at: https://books.google.com/ Google, in partnership with a number of public libraries has sought to make more widely accessible, old, hard-to-get books on which copyright has expired.
