Second generation (photo of a photo) horizontal view of Castle Thunder Prison looking northeast. This view was recorded after a large sign board was hung on the corner of the building.

Large pre-printed backmark label with history; by Selden & Co., Richmond, Va.

Castle Thunder was a tobacco warehouse converted into a prison used by the Confederacy to house civilian prisoners, 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. Dr. Mary E. Walker, the only woman who ever received the Medal of Honor, was also held there.

A fire in 1879 destroyed the Civil War–era prison Castle Thunder in its entirety. [jet] [ph:L]
