Five hundred prisoners arrived at Andersonville in February 1864, the first of 32,000 men to be imprisoned there before the camp was closed by Federal forces in April 1865. Most of these prisoners suffered greatly-13,000 of them died-because of poor organization, meager supplies, the Federal government's refusal to exchange prisoners, and often the cruelty of men and a government engaged in a losing battle for survival.

Why was this squalor, mismanagement, and waste allowed at Andersonville? Looking for an answer, Ovid Futch examined diaries and first-hand accounts of prisoners, guards, and officers, as well as Confederate and Federal government records (including the transcript of the trial of Capt. Henry Wirz, the alleged "fiend of Andersonville"). Having sifted the evidence, Futch has determined the conditions that existed at Andersonville, how they were dealt with, and who was responsible.
