What noted differences/similarities did you observe in the make up of the Confederate and Union juries? (Age, race, gender, background) 2. How do you think those similarities or differences would have affected the trial of Capt. Wirz? 3. How would a jury of your peers be different today from 1865? 4. If you were a Confederate Defense Attorney, what objections would you have to the Union Jury? What biases do you notice? 5. If you were appointed as the Union Prosecutor, what objections would you have to the members of the Confederate Jury? What biases do you notice?
