2020 Capt. Wirz Memorial Service, Andersonville, GA

The 45th annual Capt. Henry Wirz Memorial Service will be held in the town of Andersonville, GA on Sunday afternoon, November 8, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. 

The Service is sponsored annually by the Alexander H. Stephens SCV Camp 78 in Americus, GA.  The public is invited to attend.  In case of inclement weather, the Memorial Service will be held in the Village Hall in Andersonville.


Capt. Wirz was the Commandant of Andersonville Prison Camp in 1864-1865.  He was arrested after the War, taken to Washington, D. C, and tried before a Military Tribunal.  In a Trial that lasted several months and has been called the most Unfair Trial in American History by several historians, he was found guilty and hung on November 10, 1865.  He was found guilty of murdering 13 Yankee prisoners, although no prisoner’s body NOR a single name of a victim was ever produced.  After the hanging, the Yankees cut up his body, and exhibited the bones about the country.  In 2020 there are still some of his bones that are on public exhibit in a Maryland Museum.


The Camp 78 Honor Guard (Muckalee Guards) and Mr. Robert Coleman’s Anderson Battery Artillery Unit will participate in the Service.  John Carroll is the Camp 78 Commander.


Guest Speaker for the Service will be Mrs. Lunelle McCallister of Temple Terrace, Florida.  She is the wife of well known attorney David McCallister.  Mrs. McCallister is very active in the Florida Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy and a number of other Southern Heritage organizations.

ALBANY, GEORGIA — Susan Lee, the head of the Virginia Flaggers group, will be the keynote speaker at the Albany chapter of the Sons of Confederate Veterans’ annual Lee-Jackson Banquet Feb. 29, 2020.

The Virginia Flaggers were organized on Sept. 5, 2011 by a group of dedicated Southerners who organized to defend the honor of the Confederate veteran, protest heritage violations, and forward the colors (of the Confederate flag) in Richmond, and Virginia and beyond.  The organization has grown to include hundreds of members from all over the country who have joined the group in defending the honor of Confederate veteran.
