It is crucial to remember that although escape from Andersonville was possible, successful escape all the way back to Union lines was virtually unheard of. For many prisoners, "escape" meant only a fleeting reprieve from the misery of the stockade, perhaps long enough to gather kindling or food, but by no means a permanent condition.

Andersonville was notorious Civil War-era Confederate military prison in Andersonville, Georgia. The prison, officially called Camp Sumter, was the South’s largest prison for captured Union. Its creators built Andersonville not for quality but with the dual priorities of preventing escape and enabling as many prisoners as possible to be housed within the new camp.

No wooden barracks were built; prisoners were required to live in self-built tents. At its height in Augustthe camp housed o Union prisoners of war. Andersonville prison, or Camp Sumter as it was officially known, lives in eternal memory as the site where more t of the Union's prisoner of war dead — almost fifty per cent of the total — suffered and died at the hands of system that was either overwhelmed by the numbers taken from the battlefields, or overruled by the callous.

Every one knows the fate of Capt. Wirtz, our prison commander at Andersonville, who was hung at Washington, D.C., infor his treatment of us Union prisoners of war. It was a righteous judgment, still I think there are others who deserved hanging fully as much.

He was but the willing tool of those higher in command. A drawing of Andersonville prison, hardly showing the horrors within. Any who did escape were typically easily recaptured.

The Union had reports of 32 escapees from Andersonville, while the Confederacy had reports of escapees, including those who were recaptured, meaning a very small number actually succeeded in their efforts. During the 14 months Andersonville Prison existed, more t Union soldiers were confined here.

Of these, alm died from disease, poor sanitation, malnutrition, overcrowding, or. Even by the terrible standards of both Union and Confederate prisoner of war camps, where more t from both sides of the Civil War died, the mortality rate at Andersonville.

The story of Andersonville prison is told from the perspective of many individuals and families, probably fictional, who were involved as neighbors to the prison, prison adminstrators, guards, and physicians, and many of the Union prisoners.

This approach made the story of Andersonville come alive as Kantor created characters who represented what must have been the experiences of.
