We visited this amazing place when we were staying in Plains, Georgia. This incredible site is where the Civil War POW's were kept in prison. Conditions were awful - prisoners died from lack of water, sanitation, food and shelter. It is a green, pleasant peaceful site now, a parkland surrounded by forested woodland, but to be sent there as a POW must have been a death sentence for the men captured during the Civil War between the north and the south. The site was chosen because there was a railway leading to what is now the historic pioneer village of Andersonville.
