Ole,
You make my point better than I possibly could. Jarvis points out that historians have looked at the same event in vastly different ways over the years. You immediately call it a "southern spin" it isn't. It is a different interprentation of history.

When did Lincoln become a saint.... come on Ole... you know he has achieved at least sainthood. He is beyond meaningful criticism. There is a whole industry dedicated to preserving the party line concerning him. There are books full of quotes he did not make, but some say should have or could have.. I have heard well educated people here i n Springfield refer to him as "quite possibly the greatest human who ever lived".... direct quote! whoever and whatever he may have been, he wasn't that!
