Andersonville pictures

Here are the last 3 pictures from Memorial Day.

This is the replication of the tents that the people slept in.

The "Stockade" marker shows the outside border of the fence. The inside "Deadline" marker shows the inside line or fence if anyone came near they were shot.

The replica fence and gate you see in the background is exactly what it used to look like (only just a portion of it). The white building is an amazing story. Evidently they had no fresh water and people were dying from the diseased water. One night during a storm, lightening struck a tree, split it in half and fresh water from the earth started flowing. The prisoners from then on out where given fresh water. Praise God! Water still flows in there today.

Here are the last 3 pictures I promise.
