[Mexican War] Treatment of Prisoners

I'm seeking information on the long-standing practice and custom of the military to separate and protect officers who become prisoners of war. The 1857 Army Regulations, for example, provided that US officers are to ensure that officers taken captive are to be given due treatment in appropriate to their rank and age.
