Throughout the day, the staff and volunteers at Andersonville National Historic Site will lead you through the events that took place every day within the Andersonville prison (Camp Sumter) as well within the Confederate camps and offices. The living historians and re-enactors will explain to you the activities and challenges that the soldiers from both sides faced daily: How did these men endure the many hardships they confronted daily? Were these men any different than the normal soldier in the field? What was the reaction of the young boys and old men assigned to the operation of the overcrowded prison? Join us to gain a better understanding of the experiences of prisoners of war during the Civil War.
