This Day in Georgia Civil War History

June 22, 1864

Conditions at Andersonville Worsened

With Georgia being threatened from the North, matters continued to worsen at Camp Sumter - Andersonville prison - near Americus in south Georgia. On this day an official from the prison sent an urgent message to Georgia Reserves Commander Howell Cobb; requesting that the guards be reinforced and that no further prisoners should be sent to the already badly overcrowded stockade.
