TV Movie | | Drama
A dramatization of the 1865 war-crimes trial of Henry Wirz, commandant of the notorious Confederate POW camp at Andersonville, Georgia.
Cameron Mitchell portrayed General Lew Wallace with a close cropped, short, neat beard. The real General Lew Wallace was known for his long, untidy, unruly beard.
The character of Henry Wirz was referred to as Captain Wirz several times during the film. In reality, Wirz had been promoted to Major about two months before the end of the Civil War, and Major was his final commission. Wirz should have been referred to as Major throughout.
