Andersonville Prison

This was a Confederate prison that was infamous for its human misery and horror. Union prisoners are shown using the latrine in the foreground. Sentry posts appear in the distance atop the stockade fence. Opened in 1864, by July of that year Andersonville held 32,000 prisoners within an enclosure of just sixteen and a half acres. By war's end it had 12,912 graves.
