Andersonville Dead from Norwich, Connecticut

   In 1866, Norwich residents retrieved some of the bodies of their Andersonville dead and brought them home for burial with honors in Yantic Cemetery.  They included Edward Tisdale, Sylvanus Downer, George Ward, and Joseph Winship, all members of the Eighteenth Regiment Connecticut Volunteers, Company C.  But a mystery surrounds these soldiers.  Who were these men and boys and what did they experience in that rebel prison?  Did all of these men actually die at Andersonville?  Could some of them be found living in Connecticut decades later?
