This Day in Georgia Civil War History

May 22, 1864

Andersonville Hospital Moved

At Camp Sumter - Andersonville prison - the inmate hospital, previously located inside of the disease ridden and filthy stockade, was relocated southeast of the prison in an oak grove. While this did provide a healthier environment for the patients, it did little to lessen the high death rate caused by a lack of food and medicine.
