Andersonville On The RioGrande

 Henry Wirz dithered. Supplies were practically non-existent. Crowding and filth did what they do. The prisons on both sides of that conflict were terrible, but we remember Andersonville because of a novel, and the photos and records compiled at the end of the war. 

Shebangs. The trademark shelters of Andersonville. There is food and water, and there are porta-pots, but the administration is dithering. The Rio Grande is not a good place to be bathing and washing clothes. Crowding and filth can still do their thing. Keep watching. This could come to a neighborhood near you.
