Andersonville was built in 1864 to hold 10,000 Union prisoners of war. By the time the camp was closed 14 months later, over 45,000 prisoners were living there in squalid conditions, without enough food, water, shelter or medical attention. Over 13,000 Union prisoners died at Andersonville. Captain Henry Wirz, the commander at Andersonville, was hanged as a war criminal.  The site is now a memorial to all prisoners of war from all US wars.
