Andersonville


While we were in Georgia, we toured the Andersonville Civil War Cemetery.  I grew up going there at least once a year and I always forget that other people in America don't always know the story of the most notorious prison of the Civil War.

I once had a friend in Alaska ask me, "What was the Civil War even about?  Didn't some of the states try to become their own country or something?"  I can't imagine what the expression on my face was at the time.  I hope I had good control of my features.

Anyway, Katie is covering American History this year and I wanted her to see this so when we cover the Civil War she will have some personal knowledge of what was going on there.

I don't really want to write about everything there but here are some pictures and if you want to go google it to learn more, feel free.
