Last week we brought you the big news of the upcoming 19th October event at the Andersonville National Historic Site, when a plaque will be unveiled to commemorate the Irish American dead of Andersonville and their families (more on that here). To mark the occasion we have prepared two new project infographics, each of which examines some of the key facts and figures relating to the first 850 Andersonville Irish identified. This post shares the first, which examines the demographics of the 850. To explore the infographic in more detail just click on the image below. Remember too that you can check out the full Andersonville Irish database of 850 men as well as the interactive map of Ireland charting where hundreds of them were from over at the Project Page. The second infographic will be released later this week.
