Author and former jurist Frank Williams looked at the question facing Union leaders in the post-war era: Should ex-Confederates receive pardons? He discussed President Andrew Johnson’s lenient approach after Abraham Lincoln’s assassination. He also talked about the cases of former Confederate President Jefferson Davis and General Robert E. Lee -- both of whom avoided prosecution -- as well as that of Henry Wirz, the Andersonville prison commander who was executed. This program was from the annual Lincoln Forum symposium. close
