Georgia National Historic Sites


Andersonville National Historic Site

10/2/1997 Continued east to Andersonville to the NHS. Saw a good film in the visitor center. Stopped at the National Cemetery; row after row of the about 13,000 buried here that died at Andersonville POW camp. Drove the perimeter of the camp, stopping to walk around seeing the “dead line”, a reconstructed section of the 20 foot high fence, monuments, wells and escape tunnels, etc. Hard to believe 30,000 men were here.

Jimmy Carter National Historic Site

10/2/1997 Headed east to Plains and Jimmy Carter NHS. Passed the road JC lives on (no public access) and stopped at the (old and restored) Plains High School where JC graduated (Roslyn C also). Saw exhibits about Carter and drove to his nearby boyhood home. Went back to the center of town, by the depot where Carter ran his campaign, and bought fried peanuts, salted roasted peanuts and peanut brittle.
