This book written by James Madison Page, a Northern soldier, represents an important narrative of Andersonville prison in Georgia. Madison brings his defense of the prison commander Henry Wirz, who was charged by the U.S. Government and executed after the Civil War. The author's description of the trial, conviction, and execution of Wirz is extremely sympathetic and provides an alternative view of the Confederacy in the Civil War.
