1. Monuments and Memories Marker
Inscription. At this corner of the prison, the state of Wisconsin erected a monument near the site where many Wisconsin prisoners had camped. Prisoners tended to form groups by state or regiment, to sustain morale.

Look for other monuments on the prison site and in the national cemetery. Where so little historical evidence remains, symbols of commemoration have become an important part of Andersonville's physical and emotional landscape.

In the photo below, veterans pose at the Connecticut Monument in the national cemetery.
 
Erected by National Park Service.
