Americans All: The Evolution of the American Identity at Andersonville National Cemetery The Andersonville National Cemetery was dedicated in the summer of 1865 as the final resting place for the nearly 13,000 men who died at Andersonville prison. Since then approximately 7,000 American servicemen and their families have joined those prisoners and made Andersonville National Cemetery their final resting place. Their stories of sacrifice are separated by a hundred years in the history books, but at Andersonville their stories are separated by only a few hundred paces. Join a park ranger to explore how the national cemetery can help us better understand what it means to be an American. Meet at the Rostrum area in the cemetery for this one hour walking tour.
