You are about to enter Andersonville, one of the largest Confederate prisoner-of-war camps. Of the 45,000 Union soldiers confined here, nearly 13,000 died.

Beyond a walking tour of the stockade area, a visit to Andersonville involves an inner journey - to image prisoner's existence here and to discover the meaning of the place from the fragments that remain. Throughout the site there are clues to the high rate of mortality.

"Then came the captives, weary, worn and hungry from prolonged travel cooped up like beasts in freight cars. Down from the depot they marched amid the jeers and taunts of a gaping crowd. The gate opened. The stockade swallowed them." Lessel Long, 13th Indiana Infantry. February 21, 1864
