National POW Museum (Andersonville)


Andersonville, Georgia is best known as a prisoner of war camp during the Civil War where over 45,000 Union soldiers were kept, and nearly 13,000 died from disease, poor sanitation, malnutrition, overcrowding, or exposure. However, the Andersonville National Historic Site has since become the site of the National Prisoner of War Museum, the only National Park System area that serves as a memorial to all American prisoners of war, including those of World War II. For our program, we interviewed Don Scott, a veteran and POW of the Second World War.
