Memorial Day at Andersonville

Memorial Day 2016
Niki and I were fortunate to spend a few hours at the Andersonville (Georgia) National Historic Site today. The Site’s 516 acres includes the infamous Andersonville Prison from the Civil War, arguably the most inhumane prison this country has ever seen, the National Prisoner of War Museum and the Andersonville National Cemetery with 13,714 graves. Through the efforts of countless volunteers, all graves held an American Flag this Memorial Day. Tomorrow the flags will be removed. This is a most thought provoking site that gives one great cause to reflect on man’s inhumanity to his fellow man. We shall have more photos of the three main sections found at Andersonville in future posts.
