Camp Lawton Georgia

A major part of our trip to Georgia was a visit to Camp Lawton, a Confederate prison camp near Millen, Georgia where my ancestor was held after Andersonville.  The prison camp is being studied by the archeology department at Georgia Southern University and we met the team doing this valuable study of a relatively pristine Civil War site.
