This Day in Georgia Civil War History

February 03, 1864

Construction at Andersonville Continued

Construction on the stockade at Camp Sumter - the military prison being built near Andersonville, Georgia, continued. On this day the quartermaster wrote to a commissary in Columbus requesting more provisions, as local suppliers would only be able to provide half of what would be needed to feed the prisoners and workers there. Keeping this prison supplied would continue to be an ongoing - and very serious - problem.
