Detail Brigadier General John Hunt Morgan Escapes From The Ohio Penitentiary :

There are several lines of thought about how Brigadier General John Hunt Morgan and six of his officers escaped from the Ohio Penitentiary November28, 1863. Some feel that the accounts of digging a tunnel written by Captain Thomas Hines and Captain Lorenzo Hockersmith are correct. Some feel that a tunnel was completed but bribery was used to get supplies and make certain that prison officials looked the other way while work on the tunnel was in progress and the escape was made. Some feel that there never was a tunnel and bribe money allowed the men to just walk out the door. We are going to examine documents and reports made by the participants, Union and Confederate, involved in the escape and the investigations of the escape.
