ANDERSONVILLE, GA (WALB) -

History will come alive on at the Andersonville National Historic Site’s “Night Museum” event.

The “Night Museum” will take place on Saturday, November 12, 2016, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

During the event, guests can experience the National Prisoner of War Museum and the Civil War prison after dark.

Living historians portrayed as Confederate soldiers and Union prisoners will be present to explain what it was like to live in the camp during the 1860s.

Guests can also stroll through the Prisoner of War Museum and hear from speaker, Pat Curry, the son of a Prisoner of War in North Korea.

At 8:00 p.m., the site will host a special outdoor program that uses the night sky to show guests how they’re still connected to the night sky seen by the Confederate soldiers and Union prisoners.

The “Night Museum” is free to the public.
