    Several weeks after North Carolina joined the Confederacy, Governor Henry Clark was commissioned to construct a prison for incoming Union POWs. An empty textile mill, Maxwell Chambers mill, in Salisbury was selected as North Carolina's only prison during the Civil War. Prison operations began in December 1861, when over 100 Union prisoners were moved from the Raleigh State Fairgrounds to the Salisbury Confederate Prison. However, by October 1864 the population of Northern war inmates had increased to about 10,000, far exceeding capacity and before the war's end 4,000 Union soldiers succumbed at the prison, primarily due to unsanitary conditions and poor diet.
