    The Union Civil War dead at Andersonville were buried very close together,much more so than later interments. At first they used pine coffins but as prisoner deaths increased,they began burying them shoulder-to-shoulder. The second picture is one of my favorites that I took that day. It is a pretty powerful image to me. It is Union graves,Section H of the cemetery. I stood in the bed of my truck to take the picture. If I'd had more time,I would've walked that section.

    If it hasn't already been said, the victors write the history books.

    EDIT: Oops, I see it has.

    I've only had two beers in dog years.


    When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead.
    It is difficult only for the others.
    It is the same when you are stupid.

    I have visited Gettysburg several times and have yet to find any acknowledgement that Southern troops fought and died there as well. There are no grave markers for any Southerners who fell during this battle.

    Just a few more from Andersonville National Cemetery. I really like these shots too. If there's a better way to post pics in this forum,I'm open to suggestions. Can't seem to post them any way other than thumbnail.:

    Iíve found that TPF has a maximum size for images. I use other sites to post images and then link to them by url. imgbb.com is a file repository thatís not too bad and free to join.
