Be A Junior Ranger
As a Junior Ranger, you can help protect natural and historic areas in our country! Young visitors to Andersonville National Historic Site may become Junior Rangers during their visit. Children ages 6 and up can earn Junior Ranger badges and patches by completing an activity book which allows them to explore the experiences of prisoners at Andersonville.
Did You Know?
Very little remains of the original Andersonville prison. On the grounds, only the earthworks remain. Housed in the National Prison of War Museum are the original lock, key, and hinge from the South Gate along with a piece of the deadline and a post from the stockade. Relics from prisoners include a mirror and sewing kit as well as handmade items such as a pipe and rings made of bone.
