Introduction

The papers of the late Roger Long were donated to the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center by his widow Novella King in 2012.

Biographical Sketch

Born in Bellville, Ohio June 21, 1937, Roger Long graduated from The Ohio State University in 1959. During the summers of 1955 and 1958, he worked in New York City. He attended Mexico City College, where he wrote for the English “Mexico City Times.” He married Marilyn Zeldman in 1959. They were the parents of two children: Lisa and Andy.

His father was an agent for Wolverine Insurance Company. Roger also entered the insurance business, founding Long and Durnell Insurance Company. Following his career in insurance, he moved to Port Clinton, Ohio where he pursued his long held interest in the Civil War and the Confederate Officers’ Prison at nearby Johnson’s Island in Lake Erie.  In 1991, he married Novella King.

He was dedicated to the local history of Northwest Ohio and the Erie Islands. Mr. Long wrote for, and for a time, served as an associate editor of “Blue and Gray.” He researched, lectured, and wrote extensively about Sandusky, Ohio native and Civil War financier Jay Cooke of Gibraltar Island and the abolitionist family of John Brown of South Bass Island.  But his particular passion was for the history of the Confederate Officers’ Prison on Johnson’s Island.

His interest led him to repositories in southern states, where he researched the lives of imprisoned officers through their letters, diaries, and memoirs. As an authority on Johnson’s Island, Mr. Long shared his knowledge with descendants, educators, historians, and students by way of numerous articles and essays, lectures, and during island tours. For many years, Mr. Long was the featured speaker at the Johnson’s Island annual Memorial Day service. He routinely provided programs for Elder College classes and Lakeside, Ohio’s summer Chautauqua lecture series. He wrote book reviews, scripts for documentaries, and articles for area historical publications. He enjoyed providing computer instruction at the Ida Rupp Public Library, teaching at Terra State College, and participating in theatrical performances at Port Clinton’s Playmaker’s Civic Theater. Mr. Long passed away at Port Clinton, Ohio November 27, 2011. He is survived by his wife Novella King; daughter Lisa and son Andy Long, and stepson Jacob King. 

 

Scope and Content

This collection spans the years from 1859 to 1995, however, the bulk dates from 1959 – 1995. The collection is primarily made up of Roger Long’s research papers of the Civil War Confederate Officers Prison on Johnson’s Island in Lake Erie. They include photocopies of published articles, books, diaries, letters, memoirs, documents, and photographs from various institutions. Also included are Mr. Long’s notes, manuscripts, correspondence, and his published articles. Only a small portion of the collection is original. These include several publications, federal documents, a handwritten pass, and several war date letters.

The first nine boxes consist of Long’s research of individual prisoners and may include genealogical and biographical information, memoirs, diaries, military records, published articles, photographs, Long’s correspondence with descendants, historians, historical organizations, and references to sources. Files are arranged alphabetically by prisoners’ surnames.

Also included in this collection are photocopied and published lists of dead (Confederate and Union) as well as burial lists; maps and drawings of Johnson’s Island; photographs of the island; Confederates from various states; and regimental (Union and Confederate) information. 

Box 11 consists largely of newspaper clippings (1862 – 1865) mainly from the “Sandusky Register;” notes to various sections of the Official Records relevant to the prison; historic information on Sandusky, Ohio; and manuscripts and published works on the Johnson’s Island prison. Box 12 contains articles, speeches, drafts and manuscripts for chapters of Roger Long’s intended book on Johnson’s Island. Research correspondence with state archives, universities, libraries, and other researchers can also be found here.

Reports and correspondence regarding preservation; materials on Jay Cooke, who owned Lake Erie’s Gibraltar Island; and John Brown, Jr., who lived on Lake Erie’s South Bass Island during the Civil War can be found in Box 13. Materials on various Civil War battles, prisons, hospitals, units, individual Civil War soldiers and officers; Abraham Lincoln, Long’s published Civil War articles, and his work as magazine editor are part of Box 15. Box 17 contains copies of incomplete runs of “Blue and Gray” and “Gettysburg Magazine,” dating from 1964 to 1995. Long’s personal correspondence, journals, other writings, and some business correspondence are also included in the collection. Microfilm of Civil War manuscript collections from various institutions may be found in Box 20.   

A variety of artifacts, some of which are believed to be “dug” artifacts from the site of the Confederate prison on Johnson’s Island, have been transferred to the Museum. Two boxes of index cards complete the collection. One is presumed to be that of Roger Long and the other appears to have been compiled by an unknown individual. The cards are arranged alphabetically by surname. It is supposed that each name refers to a prisoner. Biographical data and historical sources are listed for each of the individuals.

JOHNSON’S ISLAND

Between April 1862 and Sept. 1865, Johnson’s Island served as a military prison, primarily for Confederate officers. About 9,000 prisoners passed through, including 25 generals and several U.S. Senators, state governors, a U.S. Supreme Court justice and 5 slaves.

Prisoners came to Sandusky by rail and then boarded a steamboat for the 3-mile trip across Lake Erie’s Sandusky Bay. All U.S. money was confiscated and put in an account so that prisoners could purchase items from a sutler store inside the 12-foot high fence.

The prison was guarded by the “Hoffman Battalion,” later known as the 128th Ohio Volunteer Infantry. Several other units also acted as guards at various times. These Federals were housed in barracks similar to those for prisoners. South of the stockade were scores of support buildings, warehouses, barns, etc.

Prisoners had a 16-acre compound, 12 two-story barracks and a hospital. Prisoners were allowed to swim in the bay in the summer. Friends and family kept the captives supplied with clothing and food delicacies.

However, for several months rations were drastically reduced and no packages were allowed. This was in retaliation for reported conditions of Southern prisons housing Union captives—especially Andersonville in Georgia. During this retaliation, prisoners on Johnson’s Island went hungry and were reduced to killing and eating rats and guards’ pets that wandered through the gate.

Prisoners passed the time by writing letters, reading, playing baseball, and carving jewelry, chess sets, violins, etc. Theatricals were organized. There was a debate club, schools for law, dentistry, foreign languages, etc. Still, as one prisoner noted, “Time was long and Dickens was short.”

About a dozen prisoners escaped from Johnson’s Island, several by walking across the ice to Marblehead or Sandusky. Others simply boarded the steamboat for Sandusky. One prisoner stole a Federal officer’s rowboat and rowed to Marblehead.

Although records are often confusing, it appears that more than 250 prisoners died. Of those, 206 are buried in the cemetery – 211 according to other records. Some bodies were shipped home for burial. Still, 17-19 bodies are not accounted for – and are believed to be buried somewhere on the island. Four prisoners were executed, and two were killed by guards, one while trying to escape.

Today [2014] Johnson’s Island is a National Historic Landmark. The cemetery is owned by the federal government.  The Georgia marble tombstones were placed in 1890, with the exception of two that were previously located at the cemetery. A few additional stones have been placed since 1890. The monument, known as “The Lookout,” was erected in 1910 by the Daughters of the Confederacy. The sculptor was Sir Moses Ezekiel, and the statue was cast in Rome. The base was paid for by the Masonic Lodge of Mississippi.
