Memorial Plaques at Andersonville NHS
Since the late 1980s, continued memorialization and remembrance at Andersonville has taken the form of bronze tablets.

These plaques are dedicated to the larger themes of the park, and commemorate the sacrifices of American servicemen and woman held as prisoners of war in conflicts throughout our history.
