circa 1855

During the last months of the Civil War, several Union officers were confined by the Confederacy in this house. As retaliation for this imprisonment, President Lincoln moved six hundred Confederate prisoners from Fort Delaware to the stockade at Morris Island where they were under the fire of Confederate guns. Photographs taken after the occupation of Federal forces, show surrounding homes in ruin but not one shell fell on 180 Broad.
