Synopsis

Showing the importance of Andersonville Prison in our understanding of the prisoner of war experience in American history, Andersonville Journey objectively tells its complete story from before the Civil War to the recent placement of Georgia Monument in its cemetery grounds. Andersonville--the name itself immediately evokes visions of human suffering and death amid crowded, filthy conditions. This is the first book to go beyond its war years to document the important and fascinating post-Civil War story of one of the most famous prisoner of war camps in history.

Although not nearly as scholarly as some other recent books on the subject (e.g., Bill Marvel's Andersonville: The Last Depot), Roberts's book does a creditable job of presenting the sordid history of the pestilence-ridden prison.
