Map 2: Aerial view of the Florence Stockade, the Florence National Cemetery and the campground of the Confederate guards.

[Map 2: Aerial view of the Florence Stockade, the Florence National Cemetery and the campground of the Confederate guards.(USGS National Agriculture Imagery Program [NAIP])


This map shows the location of the Florence Stockade, the Florence National Cemetery and the area where archeologists located the campground of the Confederate guards.


Questions for Map 2:

1) Use the scale bar and measure the distance in meters from the Stockade to the original location of the Florence National Cemetery. What problems do you think the prisoners who had to bury the dead had in transporting the bodies that distance? Why do you think the Confederates chose that spot to bury them?

2) Examine the area west of the Confederate Camp. Based on what you can see on the ground, do you think that archeologists could find more of the camp in that area? Why or why not? (Refer back to Reading 4, if necessary)
