      I believe Wirz was the only one tried, and that was a travesty.

      The trial of Henry Wirtz.  Andersonville
      I'm sure there were more, like the large contingent of
      Senators and others who wanted Lee hanged.  If you
      took the loyalty oath and abided by the tearms of
      surrender, Grant frequently interceeded.
