The Papers of General Nathanael Greene

To Major Edmund M. Hyrne

All prisoners of war are "to be sent to Virginia" and "securd" where the governor directs. General Stevens will "take charge of them on the March."[1] Hyrne is to prepare detailed lists of all the prisoners: those at camp, those at Hillsborough and Salisbury, N.C., and those captured by [Gen. Daniel] Morgan. He is to assist in preparing the prisoners at Salisbury to march and is to issue orders "respecting the subsistence" of all the prisoners. Captured officers "may march on parole" to a "convenient district" in Virginia.[2]
