ANDERSONVILLE, GA (WALB) -

The Andersonville National Historic Site is honoring those buried in its cemetery this Veterans Day.

Nearly 100 flags line the cemetery, in the Avenue of Flags.

It's a way the park recognizes those who gave their lives in wars, and their families.

The park sets up the Avenue of Flags for five different events throughout the year. 

"Visually, it just looks overwhelmingly patriotic. It really helps us thank those who've served our countries multiple times a year, not just during Memorial Day and Veterans Day," said Park Guide Jennifer Hopkins.

You can see the Avenue of Flags at Andersonville until November 16.
