Several prisoners are shown bathing nude in a sewage-infested creek. We see their buttocks from a distance, but nothing more than that.

A prisoner is shot and killed while attempting to pay a guard for a little food.

A man is clubbed and then stabbed in the head with a large knife.

A man receives a pair of knife wounds on his face as punishment.

A rogue gang beats and even kills new prisoners before robbing them.

A large brawl breaks out amongst the prisoners, which leaves many men badly beaten and some dead.

Six prisoners are executed by hanging.

In more than one scene, many dead bodies are arranged on the ground prior to burial.

Several uses of "SOB" and "bastard".

Some soldiers smoke cigars and pipes.

The film depicts the widespread horrors of starvation/malnutrition and disease that occurred in the prison.

A man is ravaged by the effects of scurvy and slowly dies from it.

The entire movie is emotionally intense and unsettling. However, the depicted atrocities of Andersonville are not intense as "Shindler's List" or "12 Years a Slave". Should be okay for high school classrooms.

Suggested MPAA rating: PG-13 for brutal violence, disturbing images and brief nudity.
