Book, "The Southern Side; or, Andersonville Prison. Compiled from Official Documents by R. Randolph Stevenson M.D.", Baltimore, Turnbull Brothers, 1876. 1st ed. 488pp. Folding plan frontis., plates. Orig. cloth. There is an owners signature "G A Bruce, Waynesboro Virginia". George A. Bruce enlisted on 1/16/1862 at Richmond, VA as a Corporal, promoted to Sergt 5/23/1862. R. Randolph Stevenson was the Chief Surgeon of Confederate Military Hospitals. After the War Between the States he did extraordinary research on Confederate efforts to care for imprisoned Federal soldiers, with a focus on the large prison at Andersonville and with appropriate comparisons to the care given to imprisoned Confederate soldiers in prisons operated by Federals. Stevenson devotes a good deal of his study to the miscarriage of justice known as the Wirz trial. He states that "revenge, not justice, was what the military court and the Northern people craved"; facts that did not call for Wirz's execution were simply ignored.
