During the Civil War, 4,000 Confederate troops were station around the city , this week Andersonville is giving visitors a feel of what it was like there in the late 1800's.

"There was a Conferderate prison here and all the prisoners came in on this rail road you see right here," says Peggy Sheppard, Tourism Director for Andersonville.

The historic festival which ends Sunday helps to raise money for historic preservation in Andersonville. The festival will end with a Civil War Battle reenactment at 2PM.
