hell ... hello?

I've got some short-term memory problems, but still, I've been feeling trapped inside this week.

Picture and test from: Andersonville Wikipedia entry

A Union soldier described his entry into the prison camp:
"As we entered the place, a spectacle met our eyes that almost froze our blood with horror, and made our hearts fail within us. Before us were forms that had once been active and erect;—stalwart men, now nothing but mere walking skeletons, covered with filth and vermin. Many of our men, in the heat and intensity of their feeling, exclaimed with earnestness. 'Can this be hell?'"
