Andersonville National Historic Site
Camp Sumter, commonly know as Andersonville, was the largest, and most infamous, of 150 military prisons used during the Civil War. During its existence, over 45,000 Union soldiers were held prisoner within its walls.
The site later became a National Cemetary for the almost 13,000 who died as prisoners at Andersonville. It is also the location of the National Prisoner of War Museum remembering all American prisoners of war.
