Antonia Ford suspected a citizen of kidnapping a Union General. After they found she suspected the wrong person, they put her in prison. While in captivity, her treatment was poor and she didn't have good food to eat. She passed away in prison due to these horrible things. Before she died, James E.B Stuart wrote a letter to the prison keepers to treat the prisoners better, but he was ignored.
