Time Team America: Lost Civil War Prison

Time Team America: Lost Civil War Prison

Tuesday, August 26 at 8:00 p.m.

The team excavates a Confederate prison site, abandoned as General William Tecumseh Sherman's Union Army approached.

Camp Lawton, near Milan, Georgia, housed 10,000 Union prisoners at the end of the Civil War. The remains of the camp have long been lost to history. Can "Time Team America" find the original site of the camp? What artifacts are buried beneath the ground and what do they tell us of the hellish experiences of the prisoners once held captive here?
