Andersonville National Historic Site
2 nd Annual Volunteer Project
Andersonville National Historic Site commemorates the experiences of all American Prisoners of War. The site of historic Camp Sumter (Andersonville Prison) is one of the main features of the park. Camp Sumter was built in early 1864 and was one of the largest of the many Confederate military prisons established during the Civil War. The park also features the National Prisoners of War Museum and Andersonville National Cemetery.
Volunteers are needed to help preserve and enhance the
beauty of this National Historic Site. We need experienced climbers, ground workers, and equipment.
