|Thanks TD. I can only quote Davis and Chestnut as their the only Southern POVs I've found thus far in the book on Lincoln's assassination. But I find the Southern POV on the assassination more interesting because of what was to come. Reconstruction would have happened whether Lincoln was alive or not, it was pretty much revenge for the war as I look at it today. It may have been less severe had Lincoln lived, yet it was still going to happen. But you have to figure that a part of Reconstruction had to do with Lincoln's assassination.
