Georgia Southwestern Library hosting POW exhibit from Andersonville National Historic Site

Georgia Southwestern State University’s (GSW) James Earl Carter Library is hosting “Victory From Within: The American Prisoner of War Experience” through the end of March.

The 1,200 square foot traveling exhibit was developed by Andersonville National Historic Site and illustrates four aspects of the Prisoner of War (POW): Capture, Prison Life, Those Who Wait, and Freedom. The Library invites the GSW students, the community and school groups to view the exhibit during Library hours. The installation includes artifacts used by POWs, video, illustrations, and text to tell the POW story.  The Library was the original installation site for the traveling exhibit in 2014. Since that time, it has been exhibited across the United States.

The Library will host an open house for the exhibit on Tuesday, Feb. 18 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. The public is invited to attend.

For more information or to set up a group visit, contact the Library at library@gsw.edu or at (229) 931-2259.
