Living History Volunteers
NPS/Andersonville National Historic Site
Living History volunteers assist with programs that help visitors to better understand the prisoner of war experience at Camp Sumter during the Civil War. While living history can be done throughout the year, the park hosts three annual programs with a strong living history component. We also encourage groups interested in presenting programs at other times to contact us.
To find out how you can help, please contact park staff at 229 924-0343 or through e-mail.
