Fort Warren was started in 1833 on Georges Island to protect the City of Boston. It was first occupied at the start of the Civil War. The government soon utilized the fort as a prison for Confederate military and political prisoners. The book includes stories about the Trent Affair, the writing of the John Brown song, escapes, executions and the famous Legend of the Ghost of the Lady in Black.
