Re: Charles L. Flanders:
~Honoring Our Flanders Who Served ~
This website, apparently belonging to a distant relative, says that Private Flanders was wounded and captured at Petersburg, VA on 22 June 1864. That would mean that the period of time in which he was captured, transported to Andersonville, and died, it says, of disease, was only 15 days. (If the date of 7 July 1864 on the Find A Grave site is correct).
If the date given on this site, 17 July 1864, is correct, then he lived for 25 days after being captured.
A description of the battle in the vicinity of Petersburg, VA on 22 June 1864 is given on the CWi website:
