After four days in Crew and Pemberton Prison the enlisted men of the Twenty-Seventh Connecticut received the joyful news that they had been exchanged and were released for exchange at City Point. They immediately prepared for the thirty-five mile march to the exchange location at City Point. The officers of the Twenty-Seventh Connecticut were not included in the exchanged and were detained at Libby Prison.1
