No matter what side you support, if you were at this location during the Civil War, you would hope you were on the Confederate side. This is the location of a confederate prison camp. Despite only being used a couple months, there were over 5,000 union prisoners at this location. There is a nearby historical marker which can be accessed from the highway. You can find it in the additional waypoints.
Please park at the posted coordinates. Please... DO NOT attempt this cache at night. You will see a gate which has a No Trespassing sign on it. Don't worry...permission was granted to pass the gate. Walk around the gate and take an immediate right. Follow the mowed path for about 200 feet. Please, do not leave the mowed path except to get the cache. On the right, you will see a lone pine tree. Turn right off the path at the pine tree and walk towards the fence. You will see a downed tree just in front of twin oaks near the fence. The cache is behind that downed tree. If you walk farther down the mowed path, you will see an opening in the fence to the right. The opening you see here is believed to be the location of a cemetery from the prison camp. Depending on when you come, you may even see an archaeological dig!
