This Day in Georgia Civil War History

April 28, 1865

Last Prisoner at Andersonville Buried

Only a few prisoners of war remained at Camp Sumter - Andersonville prison - those too sick to be exchanged. The last of these inmates to die at Camp Sumter was buried in the congested prison cemetery north of the stockade on this day, the first to die had been laid to rest two days after the arrival of the first prisoners in February of 1864.
