Memorial Day Flag Program
Each year, hundreds of volunteers contribute to the success of the Memorial Day holiday programs at the Andersonville National Cemetery.
The Memorial Day Flag Program begins Saturday morning and extends through the weekend so that we may properly honor the graves of our veterans. Over the four days of the holiday weekend, we rely on volunteers for assistance in the following tasks:
Courtesy the park's cooperating association Eastern National, a special patch will be made available to registered participants only, as a measure of our thanks for your assistance.
Registration forms are due to the park before April 25, 2014

Inside the Andersonville prison was a vibrant free market economy. Prisoner George Fechtner recounted that, “there were a number of barber shops there where men could get shaved, their hair cut and whiskers dyed, and some of them carried on the doctoring business. They would buy their dyeing articles to work with, their soap and other things, from new arrivals.” Other prisoners operated stores, sold firewood, and repaired clothes and shoes.
