During my drive home from work today, I was listening to NPR and a story came on concerning the discovery of Camp Lawton down in Georgia. Camp Lawton is the camp that held captives from Andersonville once it was evacuated. For 150 years the location of Camp Lawton was not known…until the find was detailed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and Georgia Southern University.
Also, following the Camp Lawton story was a story about Joe McGill who is helping to preserve slave cabins by sleeping in them. To read about Joe’s adventures take a look at the following links.
