David,

Exactly!!...It was a highly charged event!! Excellent choice of words!!.....I think the fact that it was highly charged is what makes the massacre debate such a "heated" one. With so many facts, so many conflicting accounts...and so much time having passed, no one will ever be able to difinatively say it was a massacre or not. At one point, Forrest did order the shooting stopped, yet it, to some degree, continued. Even a day after the battle, troops did some terrible things, and yet other troops did some humane things....

Thanks for stimulating my thoughts!!
