Andersonville Prison Camp
Andersonville, GA
February 1-2, 2003

Still traveling through enemy territory, Your Correspondent ventured deep into Georgia to visit Andersonville Prison. Unfortunately, not many make the trip given its remote location however for those willing, a visit to the camp, and adjoining cemetery containing 12,000 Union prisoners, drives home better the enormity of the War's suffering than probably any battlefield. Given the unfortunate coincidence of the Columbia disaster, the visit could not have been more funereal in mood.
