A court martialed Confederate officer faces trial for running the notorious prison of war camp in Andersonville, Georgia, where over 14,000 Union prisoners died from disease, starvation and neglect. The defendant, Captain Henry Wirz, justified his actions with a plea that he was only following orders, believing he was relieved of any personal responsibility because he was performing his duty.

With an all-star cast includes William Shatner (Star Trek), Martin Sheen (The West Wing), Cameron Mitchell (Carousel), Richard Baseheart (Being There), Jack Cassidy (The Eiger Sanction), Buddy Ebsen (The Beverly Hillbillies) and Alan Hale (Gilligan’s Island). Directed by the celebrated George C. Scott (Patton),
