|Andersonville was an infamous
prison camp operated by the Confederates, near present-day Americus,
Georgia. Captured Union Soldiers were crammed into the open
air barricade with no shelter and little food. Buffeted by the
elements and plagued by disease, many succumbed to death. The
Confederates trained firepower (above) on the northern edge of the
camp (upper right corner).
