Atlanta, Georgia (CNN) -- The discovery of the exact location of a stockade and dozens of personal artifacts belonging to its Union prisoners is one of the biggest archaeological Civil War finds in decades, federal and Georgia officials said Monday.

Outside of scholars and Civil War buffs, few people have heard of the Confederacy's Camp Lawton, which replaced the infamous and overcrowded Andersonville prison in fall 1864.

"Archaeologists call it one of the most significant Civil War discoveries in decades," a joint statement read.


This is an exciting find for civil war historians, it will give some insight into living conditions back then especially for a POW in that time. I look forward to their full report!
