As northerners, white southerners, and African Americans contested the meaning of the war, these divisive memories tore at the scars of the conflict and ensured that the subject of Civil War prisons remained controversial.
By the s, the death of the Civil War generation removed much of the emotional connection to the war, and the devastation of the first two world wars provided new contexts in which to reassess the meaning of atrocity. As a result, Cloyd explains, a more objective opinion of Civil War prisons emerged -- one that condemned both the Union and the Confederacy for their callous handling of captives while it deemed the mistreatment of prisoners an inevitable consequence of modern war.

Om has harrowing stories of life during the brutal reign of the Khmer Rouge between and when upward of 2 million Cambodians died from malnutrition, disease and murder in the country's notorious Killing Fields. She was clubbed on the head, stripped and left for dead in one of the many killing fields strewn across the Cambodian countryside. She is the lone survivor.
