A Monument to Capt. Wfrz.
The Georgia Division of the Daugh
ters of tho Confederacy Convention,
held in Macon, have started a move
ment to erect a mouument to Capt.
Wira, commander of the prison at
Anderdon ville. Their resolutions
will be endorsed by every Confederate
soldier as the right thing to do in
honor of the truth of history.
Capt. Wirz was a soldier, and per
formed his duty as a soldier, and
waB murdered after the war by the
Federal government to appease tho
wrath of the radical element of the
North. The treatment of the prison
ers at Andersonville was not half as
bad as the treatment of the Confed
erates in Northern prisons. This
matter bas been [fully shown by the
records, as there were 7 per oent.
more deaths in Northern prisons than
in the Southern, notwithstanding the
North had all the medioal appliances
of the world to drew from, while the
South had no medicines-the North
even declaring > quinine contraband.
Wo will not discuss this further, but
quote from the resolutions.
The following action was taken by
Mrs. A. C..Benning, of Co-lumbuo,
moved that "that convention adopt
the resolution of Mrs. Young, of Sa
vannah, and that the Georgia Divis-,

tive, and seoure funds to erect at An
dersonville, 6a., a monument whioh
shall stand as the protest of the South
against the slanders and falsehoods,
already displayed, in bronze and mar
ble at that place/' Seconded by Mrs.
M. L. Johnson, of Cass Station, and
The resolution offered by Mrs.
Young reads as follows:
"Whereas, Capt. Henry Wirz, com
mandant of the Stooksde Prison, at
Anderson ville, Ga., was judicially
murdered under false charges of
cruelty to prisoners. . And,
"Whereas, after an interval ur i
forty years these false ohsrges are I

"Resolved, That the United Daugh
ters of the Confederacy in Georgia,
use their influence to obtain the
neoessary funda to placo a suitable
memorial to Capt. Wira, in Anderson
ville, Ga., upon whioh a statement
of faots shall be engraved io enduring
brass or marble, showing that the
Federal government was solely respon
sible for the condition of affairs at
Andersonville. Be it farther
"Boscived, That as four Federal
prisoners were permitted to go from
Andersonville to Washington to plead
for ah ezohange ' of prisoners, and
when refused a' hearing returned to
