|Members, I read some where over the years, about a confederate sniper shooting an union officer in the Washington defences or Petersburg lines. The officer was shot standing beside Lincoln. I was telling this story to one of my coworker's, and he asked me the distance of the shot. And I tried finding it in my book's this evening and have had no luck. I also found a web page that said this story was fiction. I would like to ask the member's, if anyone know's these question's? Did this story indeed happen? And if it did. Who made this shot? What was the distance? What was the weapon?
