Carrol Hall, Fort Monroe Where Jefferson Davis was held After the surrender of the Confederacy, President Jefferson Davis, having been captured on May 10, 1865 in Georgia, was transferred to Fort Monroe on May 19. He was to remain imprisoned there for two years, first in a casemate and then in Carroll Hall. Upon arrival, Davis was placed in irons by the new Fort commander, General Nelson Miles. Reports of his harsh treatment and ill health, based on the complaints offered by his attending Army physician, Dr. John J. Craven, raised a public outcry. Davis was indicted for treason a year later and released on bail in May 1867, a year after his indictment. Davis was never to face trial. The oval is trimmed to the period 8.5 " X 10.5” mat.
