“The Role of Lake Erie at the Johnson’s Island Civil War Military Prison: View from the Bottom of a Latrine”

The United States chose western Lake Erie as the location to house captured Prisoners of War. Escape from Johnson’s Island was complicated, in no part due to its location in Sandusky Bay of Lake Erie.  Archaeological and historical evidence traces the perils of escape from the bottom of a latrine to crossing Lake Erie to Canada.
