"On December 17, 1863, the prison camp officials closed the barber shop and newsstand and stopped sales of stamps, envelopes and writing paper, also probably in retaliation for the escape attempt.[115] When Sergeant–Major Oscar Cliett of the 55th Georgia Infantry Regiment reported to DeLand that his men rejected an offer of amnesty if they joined the Union Navy because they could not swim, DeLand had him placed in the dungeon for twenty-one days.[115]
