Avon at Andersonville

November 3, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Join RAHS member Chris Brown who will discuss the local connection to the notorious Confederate prison. In February of 1864, as the Civil War dragged on into its fourth year, a small patch of rural Georgia countryside was turned into the Confederate Prisoner-of-War Camp known as Andersonville. Overcrowding, inadequate water and food supplies, unsanitary conditions, and disease took their toll and resulted in over 13,000 Union deaths. A number of Avon men experienced the horrors of the camp first hand, some of whom would never return home. These are their stories.
