Rules and Regulations of the Prison, 1865
In the final months of the Civil War, the Andersonville Prison continued to operate, though with a much smaller prison population that the previous summer. Sgt. Lyle Adair recorded these prison regulations, which were circulated on January 1, 1865, in his diary along with the notation, "these were the orders to which we the prisoners of Andersonville were subject."

It rained 22 days during the month of June 1864 at Andersonville. Prisoner Warren Goss remembered, "it was miserably wet, dirty, and disagreeable with unpleasant odors. Neither could one get accustomed to, or be able to blunt the senses to, the existence of so much misery."
