2024 marks the 160th Anniversary of Camp Sumter Military Prison. Beginning in January 2024, and continuing through November 2025, we will trace the history of the prison through social media posts and special programs.
Each month, we will highlight major events that occurred at Andersonville and the people whose lives were changed forever by their time spent at the prison.
We will also be doing Second Saturday's! Special programs will be held every second Saturday of a month. Please see the event calendar below for more details.
We hope you join us throughout the next several months as we remember the Civil War’s most notorious prison.
Each year the park hosts a series of recurring events at the National Prisoner of War Museum, the historic prison site, or the Andersonville National Cemetery. The following links provide a basic overview of each of these annual special events and programs:
