    We have to learn from history! This wasn't that long ago!An American Concentration Camp This is in AMERICA. During the Civil War, "Camp Sumter" as it was officially known was built east of Andersonville in February of 1864 & received roughly 45,000 Union prisoners. Nearly 13,000 soldiers died. (I had heard 'Camp Sumter' mentioned in movies but never knew this is what it was. There were 'camps' like this in the north also.) kn
