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.

Did You Know?
A cell from the Hanoi Hilton (Vietnam War prison) has been re-constructed in the National Prisoner of War Museum. Known also as the Hoa Lo Prison, it was built by the French around 1900 to hold Vietnamese political prisoners. During the Vietnam War, the prison held United States servicemen who faced horrific conditions and torture while imprisoned there.
