Describe the condition of Andersonville prison in Georgia?

Andersonville prison was a disease ridden lace where confederates kept captured union soldiers during the Civil War. The prison was overly stuffed with union soldiers and had many diseases. The prison was originally sup post to hold about 10,000 soldiers but eventually was raised to around 20,000 and still didn't have enough room. A bog percentage of the soldiers kept there died, and there wasn't a lot of food. Sometimes the guards that protected the prison wouldn't have enough food either. A lot of times the soldiers guarding the prison would kill may prisoners that tried to climb over the wooden barriers to escape.


How many prisoners were at andersonville?

I visited Andersonville and the Prisoner of War Museum last summer. I believe the statistics were that 45,000 prisoners passed through the gates of Andersonville Prison camp or also known as Camp Sumter. The total deaths for its entire operation was 15,000. What is amazing is that one Union soldier secretly kept records of each death and place of burial, such there were only about 200 who were Unknown graves. I think the maximum confined at one time was about 15,000---but I'm not sure. The camp originally was only 16 acres and later they expanded it to 26 acres. However the small stream that flowed through the camp and the swamp bottom land took up some of the space. And there was a 5-foot dead line around the inside of the walls of the prison that no prisoner could cross. That reduced the effective size of the camp even more.
