Subject: RE: Review: Unique Civil War Biography
Hello Jimmy C: Yes, I am aware of that. Captain WIRTZ was the very FIRST person convicted of war crimes. It is with some tredipation that I mention this: if you go to google, and punch in Andersonville Prison, you will bring up many, many entries. There is now, a great deal of controversy regarding the justice of Capt. Wirtz's execution. My concern here is twofold: first is that we've done quite a thread drift from the original posting; and also, I do NOT want to start fighting the civil war all over again. And, if no one else has been able to post the song O mentioned, I will do so in morning. CHEERS, Bob
