Civil War prison yields new artifacts 150 years after the war began

A Civil War prison in Georgia -- briefly the largest prison camp of the conflict -- continues to provide archaeologists with fresh artifacts, including the personal belongings of Union soldiers held there.

Camp Lawton, in Millen, Ga., has been the site of an archaeology excavation by a team from Georgia Southern University since last year.
