Prison Pens of the North

You’ve heard about the tragedy at Andersonville… but what have you heard about the Confederate POW camps up north during the War in which thousands of Southerners were intentionally deprived of food, shelter, and medical provisions?  Unlike the situation with the Yankee POWs at Andersonville, Union troops had more than enough provisions for the Confederate POWs in their care but intentionally starved thousands to death, sometimes with rations sitting spoiling in warehouses just feet away from the malnourished prisoners.  Learn the truth by reading the “Prison Pens of the North” booklet offered by the Georgia Division.

To order your copies of “Prison Pens of the North” please visit our Division Store.

Andersonville Prison and Captain Henry Wirz Trial

This 65-page book written in 1921 by Georgia Division United Daughters of the Confederacy historian Mildred Lewis Rutherford gives facts about Andersonville Prison and Capt. Henry Wirz’ Trial in Washington D.C.  Several historians have called the trial a “national disgrace.”  The book mentions how the Yankees cut off Capt. Wirz’ head, arms, and legs and exhibited them.  The book is a very informative source of information about Andersonville Prison and the Trial of Capt. Henry Wirz that everyone interested in the War Between the States history should read.

To order your copies of “Andersonville Prison and Captain Henry Wirz Trial” please visit our Division Store.

Confederate Veterans are American Veterans brochure

After the War, Union and Confederate Soldiers, Sailors and Marines came together in a national spirit of unity and reconciliation. If the men who fought against each other came together in reconciliation, then why can’t we honor all American veterans? If we don’t honor all veterans today, then we will set the precedence to dishonor our veterans tomorrow.

This well written brochure shows that many of our nation’s military leaders who served our nation in wars after the War Between the States were decedents of Confederate Veterans.
