Hello friends the wife and I took a small vacation and I picked Georgia. I have always wanted to see Andersonville Civil War Prison. The national POW memorial and museum is there to.
This is one of the few pictures that were taken during the prison under operation.
Andersonville, or Camp Sumter as it was known officially, held more prisoners at any given time than any of the other Confederate military prisons. It was built in early 1864 after Confederate officials decided to move the large number of Federal prisoners in and around Richmond to a place of greater security and more abundant food. During the 14 months it existed, more than 45,000 Union soldiers were confined here. Of these, almost 13,000 died from disease, poor sanitation, malnutrition, overcrowding, or exposure to the elements.
You have to see some of the sites and visit some antique store while you are there to.
I did manage to come home with one tool. I found this little scrub plane from Germany.
I had to make the wife a purse to.
