|Ok, so why wasn't Davis hung? You said had he been caught between April 15th and July 7th he would have also been hung. Well May 10th saw his capture, Barlow. That's within the time you say had he been captured he would have also been hung. He was already a prisoner in Fort Monroe when those accused in the conspiracy to assassinate Lincoln were executed, but he wasn't invited to that neck tie party.
The way I read your post was as assuring us that had he not been in Irwin, Georgia and been captured between April 15th and July 7th that he would have also been hung. Well he hadn't been in Irwin Georgia for over a month when the executions occured.
