Artie told us that his grandfather was 60+ years of age when Artie's Dad was born. He also told us that family members reported that his grandfather NEVER turned down a meal after being in Andersonville. On Sundays, after church and eating their own Sunday dinner . . . if they visited with friends or family and a meal was being served, grandpa would sit down and eat another meal.
There was a reunion in Gettysburg of some of the survivors from the camp and we thought we recognized a picture of Artie's Grandfather. We took a picture of the picture and will compare it with our own pictures of his grandfather. I am not sure we will ever know if it was him, but we like to think it was. This was truly an amazing experience for us, especially knowing a family member was in this prison camp. Hard to believe that anyone survived.
After we returned to the RV's, we made dinner for Mike and Judy. Mahi Mahi, yams, steamed carrots. Since they had the great desserts, we went to their RV and had Mango Pie. YUM. A great day was had by all.
Pictures shown were taken by Artie, Judy and me.
