The Civil War explodes, air thick with musket fire, soil drenched with the blood of kinsmen, bodies piling up like cords of wood. In the madness and fury, a small group of Union soldiers fall into the hands of the Confederate army. Overnight, they find themselves herded aboard a prison train bound for the deepest regions of the South, to a slice of Hell carved out of the Georgia clay known as Andersonville.
They left the nightmare…and entered Hell. Captured Union soilders cope with life inside the Civil War’s most notorious prisoner-of-war camp. A powerful, compelling tale of war and will, with Emmy Award-winning direction by John Frankenheimer and a cast including Frederic Forrest (Apocalypse Now) and William H. Macy (ER, Fargo).
