Reading The Mysterious Island, Day 1

I am reading The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne.
It begins during the civil war when five men and one dog escape from a POW camp in Richmond Virginia. They land on a mysterious island in a hot air balloon. Uninhabited by man. Already they have lost their captain, Cyrus Harding, and a dog named Top. The captain's servant Neb is greatly disappointed. They had to use their last match to start a fire. So they are trying to keep the coals alive.
