This photograph was taken in August 1864 from a sentry box just downslope from here. The photographer was A.J. Riddle, who was preparing a report for the Confederate government.

Riddle's seven glass-plate negatives were apparently the only photographs taken of Andersonville prison during the war. Like a double exposure, the surviving photos superimpose the historic reality on today's pastoral scene. You are looking at the same piece of ground Riddle photographed.

The photograph shows the deadline, a camp road (North or Market Street), and the crowded shebangs. Shelters were more scattered in the swampy area near the creek.
