Note the film Rio Conchos, The Hellbenders, and a few others use Shelby as their basis.

Good to know. Afro

Anyone want to guess how long Blondie and Tuco were at the prison camp before the Tuco interrogation?  Same day, one day?  Seems like it was just after the first roll call when the Union was trying to match a name to Bill Carson, so it seems they weren't there very long (but may have taken a while to march to that prison).

A new little tidbit of Civil War info gathered while reading "Grant Takes Command". Prisoners of war were either exchanged or paroled up until 1864, the reason the Prisoner Of War camps arose was because that once the North started using black troops, the South refused to recognize escaped slaves in Federal Uniform as soldiers and would not agree to exchange them man for man. Rather they considered the back soldiers runaway slaves and property insisting on retuning them to sevitude, and the white commanders as outlaws under the slave laws defigned to keep people from formenting slave insurrections.

Also another reason was the sad fact that the North (Secretary Stanton) also believed that it could end the war quicker depriving the South of manpower that the exchanges would replenish.

I see from a quick web search that even Andersonville wasn't opened until early 1864. So, CJ, Betterville existing in 1862 is anachronistic, no?

Let's not tell the AR continuity types, eh? When AE mentions Andersonville to the Betterville commandant, it's proof that he's actually capable of traveling back in time!!!

CJ, check out this website, it has links to info about all (or almost all) the Civil War Prisons: http://www.censusdiggins.com/civil_war_prisons.html What I find most interesting are the Illinois Prisons: Alton Prison, Camp Douglas, Rock Island. Both Alton and Douglas (which was actually in Chicago itself) started receiving Confederate prisoners as early as February 1862. Yeah, those guys might get exchanged, but many of them could end up dying before that happened (Douglas is known, in some quarters apparently, as the "Andersonville of the North"). Maybe Douglas is the model for Betterville, but relocated somewhere near the Mississippi River?

I always considered Betterville Camp as more of a temporary collection point where prisoners would then be sent to more permamnet places like the Illinois Prisons.
