Some Improvements at Andersonville

Some improvements had finally been made at Camp Sumter - Andersonville prison. A second stockade was built, enclosing the first for security. Better barracks and a better frame privy for the inmates was constructed on the creek bed running through the compound, and the deadline was temporarily removed - this was the line which prisoners could not cross without being shot.
