al 2 years, 5 months ago on Wirz memorial planned

The comments posted by rock refer to the activities of the yankee guards at Point Lookout. If you want to know what kind of man Henry Wirz was, read James Madison Page, a Union officer who was not allowed to testify at the Wirz lynching. Also, for first hand accounts of how the yankees treated each other at Camp Sumter (Andersonville), read John Ransom's Diary (another first hand account by a Union soldier). Also, good reading by an honest modern day author, read Mauriel Joslyn's Immortal Captives. Capt. John Ogden Murray also published a book, Immortal Six Hundred, available at Confederate Reprint Company. Read what the people who were there said before you bite hook, line, and sinker for the yankee "spin".
