Does anyone know where the Union & Confederates would have placed their respective prisoners (those not wounded) during the 3-day battle?

File closers and designated provost marshals disarm and hustle them away from the front lines.

POWs tend to be pretty acquiescent when given directions to the rear (never argue with an angry armed person!).

I believe the CSA collection area for POWS is near the railroad cut.
