Tour Guide:
Andersonville National Cemetery, established on July 26, 1865, continues to provide a permanent resting place of honor for deceased veterans. The initial interments were of those who had died in the nearby prison camp and are contained in sections E, F, H, J, and K. By 1868 more than 800 additional interments in sections B and C--Union soldiers who had died in hospitals, other prisoner of war camps, and on the battlefields of central and southwest Georgia--brought the total burials to 13,700. Of these, more than 500 are unknowns. Today the cemetery contains more than 18,000 interments



(March 2010) Enlarge The Raider's Graves
Site Marker:
These six graves were deliberately set apart; these six prisoners were buried with dishonor.
The names on these headstones may not be accurate. Several of the Raiders were deserters who re-enlisted under aliases
