Photos & Multimedia
Visitors to Andersonville National Historic Site take home a wealth of memories in the many photographs and images taken of the park and national cemetery. The park not only commemorates the prisoner of war experience; it also offers a natural and cultural setting whose beauty and simplicity provide a direct contrast to the suffering which occured at the site during the Civil War.
The National Park Service is pleased to offer images, most taken by park staff and volunteers in recent years, in our photo gallery.
Audio and video files relating to the park can be found in our Multimedia Presentations page.
A traveling exhibit on the POW experience is also under development.
Did You Know?
A small number of Andersonville prisoners were able to grow crops such as beans and corn. Prisoner diaries and sketches mention this fact and a photograph taken in the summer of 1864 shows corn stalks growing near a shelter. Such an undertaking would require constant guard and demonstrates that prisoners knew they might be captives at Andersonville for quite some time.
