This Day in Georgia Civil War History

September 05, 1864

Prisoners Finally Moved from Andersonville

The Confederate government finally began transferring Union prisoners Camp Sumter - Andersonville prison - to prisons in South Carolina and elsewhere in Georgia; this would gradually reduce the inmate population at Andersonville from 33,000 to 5000 by October. One of the others places the prisoners were taken in Georgia was Camp Lawton, near Millen.
