      magnitude of the crimes vs the number of nazis who were executed.  Only seven Japanese were hanged for war crimes while there was one Confederate executed at the end of the war, the commandant of the Andersonville prison camp.  Whether or not to execute Confederate civil and military leaders was discussed in detail but in the end was decided against.  I am uncertain as to whether to include those executed for Lincoln's assassination in the count of Confederates executed as they had never been either military or civilian leaders of the Confederacy
