Andersonville was on of the most notorious prison camps during the civil war.
The caption on the bottom of this statue reads:
“Turn you to the strongholds ye prisoners of hope”
Dog Tags had not yet been invented, so came the grave of the Unknown Soldier.
Sections of the original stockade still stand. It was exciting walking back into history.
I was not aware of all the different types of cannons that were used in the Civil War.
The above monument built for the prisoners of war who died at Andersonville. Twelve of these monuments stand in the cemetery and eleven at the prison site.
The Civil War has always drawn my interest and the visit to Andersonville was a highlight of our adventures.
