Operated for only 14 months near the end of the Civil War, the military prison here at Andersonville held nearly 45,000 prisoners of war. A lack of shelter, adequate food, and clean water led to the deaths of 13,000 men here. Can you picture yourself at Andersonville? I'm Ranger Brad Stribling. Take time during National Park Week to contemplate the stories of sacrifice in America's national parks.
