Re: Fort Pillow Justification
You David, Fort Pillow can be explained away and defended by those partial to the Confederate cause. It can also be voiced as an atrocity by those partial to the Union cause. To be honest it looks like the scene of an accident, everyone has a different view...fine by me...the thing that does kind of get near me is this: one always hears about the number of Blacks killed at Fort Pillow. Should my recall be correct there was about an equal number of whites, if one includes the few Confederate casualties probably just as many.
