Along with its partners, Andersonville National Historic Site is developing "Victory From Within: The American Prisoner of War Experience," a 1,200 square foot traveling exhibition.

Did You Know?
Most visitors exploring Andersonville National Cemetery are unaware that the New York monument has an image sculpted on the reverse side of the memorial. The image on the reverse depicts two Andersonville prisoners. One is seen as dejected while the other appears hopeful. An angel approaches the prisoners carrying an olive branch, the symbol of peace, which was used to represent the reconciliation between the North and the South.
