Reconstructed north gate of the prison

Andersonville National Historic Site was the location of a Confederate POW camp during the Civil War. Today the site includes some reconstructions of the prison, the National Prisoner of War Museum, Andersonville National Cemetery, and the remains of other structures. For more about the site go to its Wikipedia page. Below are some of my photos from the site during my winter visit. All were taken close to the park's roads.
