Journey with your students to the sobering Confederate and Union Civil War prisoner of war camps with this 62 slide presentation which includes the author’s original photographs and rich, informational text. The first 47 slides feature the most infamous of Southern prison camps, Andersonville Prison in Georgia. This presentation handles a very difficult subject in a sensitive manner so the students can learn about the topic with age appropriateness. You will travel the perimeter of the stockade and deadline of the prison camp complete with the guards’ pigeon roosts, and you’ll also view the replica shebangs built by the prisoners. Students will learn of the insurmountable obstacles facing the prisoners and discover how some prisoners attempted to escape. The miracle of Providence Spring which saved many of the prisoners’ lives is also featured in this PowerPoint. Especially poignant is the work done by Clara Barton and her team in the care of the Andersonville Cemetery. The remaining slides feature the Northern prison camp called Johnson’s Island in Ohio on Lake Erie. Not much is left to see on the island, but there are some signs and diagrams as well as the Confederate Stockade Cemetery. Both of these historical locations reveal a difficult aspect of the War Between the States that is a necessary part of understanding the tragedy of that time period. Both sites serve as a respectful tribute to those who served their respective countries to the best of their ability.
