Andersonville National Cemetery

The National Cemeteries in the U.S.A. are used for graves of war dead, graves of U.S. military personnel, veterans and their spouses but not exclusively so. There are also special state veteran cemeteries.

Andersonville National Cemetery is the final resting place for the almost 13,000 Union prisoners who died while being held at Camp Sumter (ook bekend als Andersonville Prison) as prisoners-of-war. In 2017, there were in total over 20,000 graves on this cemetery, of which 921 are marked "unknown". As a National Cemetery, it is also used as a burial place for more recent veterans and their dependents.
