    Legacy of Henry Wirz

    Michael Vorenberg talked about the legacy of Confederate Captain Henry Wirz, who was in charge of the Andersonville Prison Camp from March 1864 to his arrest in May 1865 for war crimes. Professor Vorenberg argued that Mr. Wirz’s trial was framed within the context of slavery but the memory of his trial and execution has changed as historians view it through the lens of 20th century events. 

    “Judgment at Washington: Lew Wallace, Henry Wirz, and the Elusive Quest to End the Civil War” was part of the U.S. Capitol Historical Society 2014 Spring Conference “A Just and Lasting Peace: Ending the Civil War", held in the Dirksen Senate Office Building. It was the eleventh symposium in the series, "The National Capitol in a Nation Divided: Congress and the District of Columbia Confront Sectionalism and Slavery.”
