Until 2011, I was a volunteer historian for the National Park Service at Andersonville National Historic Site for 13 years. The arrival of a new Park Superintendent in 2009 at Andersonville who had a very low level of ethics and conflicts in the way I pay tribute and honor those who died here brought on what I believe were illegal, anti National Park Service Policies, and cowardly acts of what I feel were retaliation against me between November 2009 and May 2011 by ways of lies, deception, and documented slander against me. As a result of my belief that the lack of ethics and true honor paid to these hallowed grounds are not a priority of the command at Andersonville National Historic Site, I no longer volunteer for the National Park Service however I still volunteer for the public.... those who matter.
I have a complete NPS database on Andersonville prisoners as well as modern graves up to 2006. I do free research for the asking. As in all of my findagrave photos, double click on the photo and I have included the known details from the Andersonville record archives. If there is not a record posted, let me know and I will share the Andersonville information available in the Andersonville records.
I have many resources available to me for researching not only Andersonville prisoners that the Andersonville Historic Site does not have access to and I have photographed each of the more than 14000 Federal Civil War graves at Andersonville National Cemetery on disk at my fingertips.
Please feel free to join my facebook group which is based on Andersonville descendants, however anyone with interest in the History of Andersonville of the National Cemetery at Andersonville is welcome to join.
James Hawley Ross Thank you for posting the photo and the add'l information in the caption. I went to your website to read about Dorence Atwater. So interesting about what happened to him for his efforts at wanting to chronicle the War dead.
