Park Film Loan Program
On request, teachers may borrow a copy of the park's two orientation films, "Echoes of Captivity" and "Voices from Andersonville" on DVD. Each program is about 30 minutes in length. You may request the films as part of a scheduled field trip visit or contact park staff to request the films.
This offering is free, but please return the DVD so others may use it and this offering can remain free.
The park offers two films to choose from which explore the story of the Andersonville Prison and the experience of American prisoners of war. You may request one or both for classroom viewing.
Please note that this offer is available only to bonafide educational institutions and their staff or representatives.
