At Castle Thunder in Richmond, Virginia approximately one hundred female inmates were held throughout the war. Although Confederate authorities created a department at the prison specifically for the detention of "depraved and abandoned" women - prostitutes, spies and smugglers - most female inmates were political prisoners, the most famous of which was Dr. Mary Edwards Walker.

Galena, IL: Just a block east of Park Avenue on 3rd Street is the Elihu Washburne House.  Washburne was a longtime U.S. congressman, a secretary of state, and political ally of both Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant.  His home was first built in 1843 and upgraded in 1859.  It was in the library of the Washburne home on election night in 1868 that Grant learned of his election as president.  Today the Washburne House is open for tours.
