John Taylor Cuddy, a Union Civil War soldier from Carlisle in the 36th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, survived the dismal conditions at Andersonville Prison in Georgia that claimed the lives of sixty-seven members of his regiment. He died of malnutrition and sickness in the Florence Stockade at Florence, South Carolina on September 29, 1864. Cuddy was eighteen days shy of his twentieth birthday. (By Brenna McKelvey)
