Details: This rare color lithograph by J.W. Morton Junior dates from circa 1890 and depicts the infamous Georgia Confederate military stockade at Andersonville.
This original print shows the double walls separating the interior of the prison from the outside. Inside the prison are many rows of tent type shelters and dirt mounds which were dug by the prisoners in an attempt to withdraw from the heat of the summer and cold of winter. To the right of the prison is the hospital with many injured solders on crutches. Various gun emplacements around the camp hold watch over the scene.
It is handsomely framed to approx. 28"x22".
