Andersonville Prison, located in Andersonville, Georgia, was the infamous concentration camp-like facility used during the American Civil War by the Confederacy to hold Union prisoners. Condition there was so poor that of the some 45,000 prisoners held there, nearly one third perished due to disease, malnutrition, and starvation.
