ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Andersonville Historic Site ActingSuperintendentt Eric Leonard spoke at the the Albany Civil Rights Institute Thursday night.
Leonard says there's a lot to learn about the old civil war prison and cemetery that many do not know.
"Historic sites such as Andersonville often get described with just a single term," Leonard said. "We often view Andersonville as just a Civil War place and that's certainly where it's story starts but there is a lot to that and then certainly it is not where that story ends."
Andersonville is preparing to host an event for National POW Day on September 20th.
