Photo Of The Day
The Wisconsin Memorial at Andersonville Civil War Prison, Andersonville , Ga 2011
There are some places when you visit them, you can feel the depth of the history of the place....even if it was years and years ago. I have a deep reverence for the grounds of Andersonville in Georgia. The grounds, as vast and sparse as they are now in 2011... were at one time filled with the emaciated, starving, and suffering prisoners who were so unfortunate as to have found themselves there in the baking Georgia sun, under the most harsh of conditions. While the men are long dead...it feels as if their spirits still hover above that place, giving a weight to it. It is a dark place, but an important one.
