A photograph of a group of Confederate prisoners of war at Fairfax Courthouse, Virginia, America, by Alexander Gardener (1821-1882) from a negative produced by Timothy H O'Sullivan (1840-1882) in June 1862. This photograph is from an album entitled 'Canada and the United States.1867' by John Downes Rochfort (1825-1885), who toured Canada and America in 1867. These soldiers were probably taken prisoner during the battle at nearby Chantilly Plantation on 1 September 1862.
