Very interesting - I'm amazed at the ideas for entries you come up with.

Are the varying spellings of his name in the quote intentional?

I may be unusual in that I love to know dates exactly. smiley - erm when did the American Civil War end again?

The Civil War ended in April 1865, with the surrenders of Lee at Appomattox on 9 April and Johnston (with a much bigger army) at Bennett Place on 26 April.

In spite of what you may deduce from the US at present, the war has been over since then. And the Confederacy lost, thank the Lord.

Anyway, thanks for heads-up about the typo. There's a problem with old newspapers, I have to transcribe and often do it wrong. smiley - blush

Thank you. I did know it was vaguely mid- 19th century.

I must read more entries. And write some.
