Just looking at the Andersonville Prison National Historic Site, in person, is something that will make you pause and wonder — what the hell happened here? A lot of it is empty, and a lot of it is graveyard, and a lot of it is memorial monuments. In the course of a mere 14 months, in the last year of The United States’ Civil War, over 45,000 Union POWs were confined here, and almost 13,000 (nearly a third) of them died miserably — a horrifying testament to the disregard of the camp commandant, or the effectiveness of The Union in cutting off supplies to The Confederacy, or, most likely, both.
