"NOTE: All the CSRs of the men who were captured 11 Jan 1863 at Ark Post, AR, sent to MP at Camp Douglas, IL then delivered to City Point, VA 10 Apr 1863 bear the following notation: " City Point VA. April 10, 1863. "Received this 10th day of April 1863 from Cpt A. Bartlett, 9th Ver. Vols. USA (520) five hundred and twenty confederate prisoners of war and one Negro Boy, stated to be a prisoner of war.' J.H. Thompson, Commanding at City Point, VA."
(It should further be noted that this confederate prisoner shown as "Negro Boy", probably was a grown man, but to the person who received the prisoners he would always be considered a "boy".)"
