Andersonville, Henry Wirz, historical fiction, Civil War, North
This work, part novel, part chronicle, part historical reconstruction, pursues the thesis: "All involved with Andersonville were in the main pushed, manipulated, cheated" (189). This tale of misfortune has no heroes: Its central character is Henry Wirz, who for some months towards the end of his life was commander of Andersonville, one of the most notorious Confederate prisons for captured soldiers of the North.
