Camp Sumter, the Confederate prison camp at Andersonville, Georgia, was used from February 1864 to May 1865. Remembered as the Andersonville prison, it is the most infamous of the Civil War prisons. Nearly a hundred years ago the Tennessee Monument in the Andersonville Prison Park was dedicated on November 12, 1915. The pamphlet Report of the Unveiling and Dedication of the Tennessee Union Soldiers' Monument includes the program, photos of the monument and participants, the inscriptions from the monument, and the addresses given at the unveiling and dedication.
