Her ancestor was a prisoner, his was a guard

Nina Raeth and Doug Carter had no idea what they had in common when they met by chance at an archaeological dig this spring at the site of Camp Lawton, a Confederate prison camp near Millen, Ga.

Raeth's great-grandfather, a German immigrant, was a prisoner at Lawton and Andersonville. Carter's great-grandfather was a young Rebel guard at both prisons.

Raeth and Carter now share research. • Article
