Field Printed, War-date Confederate Document Signed "J.S. Winder AAG" 1pp. oblong octavo, Richmond, Virginia, March 28, 1863, Head Quarters Department of Henrico, issued by Order of General John Winder, and reads in part: "...The Bearer Jno. L Danner has permission to visit Castle Thunder to see John Wagner subject to the discretion of the officer commanding..." Fine condition. Castle Thunder, located between what is now 17th Street and 18th Street on northern side of E Cary Street in Richmond, Virginia, was a former tobacco warehouse, located on Tobacco Row, converted into a prison used by the Confederacy to house civilian prisoners, including captured Union spies, political prisoners and those charged with treason during the American Civil War. A large number of its inmates were sentenced to death. Even though the inmates were sometimes allowed boxes of medicine and other supplies, the prison guards had a reputation for brutality.
