  2. Thanks for posting! More info to come as the dig team finishes its mapping, analysis, etc.

    Ultimately, we’d like to see one of the prison barracks reconstructed at the site and turned into a museum.

    Wow. I was junking about writing a book that revolves around life in a Civil War POW camp. Need to finish my current manuscript first.

    I meant I was thinking…not junking. This iPad rewrites things for me sometimes. Sorry.
