Description

"Recently touring the southern states, 1912-1913 having visited viz: Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Louisiana. After studying the sentiment of an organization, the "United Daughters of the Confederacy," numbering about 40,000 women who have organized an aggressive country-wide society, one object has been to erect a monument at Andersonville to the memory of Captain Henri Wirz to eulogize and vindicate his conduct at that notorious prison, with its false inscriptions, terming him a martyr, has prompted us to publish this album of views, taken by the author, a professional photographer, having made a special trip for the purpose of publishing this notorious stockade prison."
