Re: Bushwacker Bill Wilson's Death
Thanks for the info. I am familiar with the Jackson family website. I am familiar with the family deception story as well. I would like to understand how Bill was able to orchestra the hoax and involve the Sherman court, judge, jurors, two defendants who were executed for his murder, and local newspapers. It does seem odd that the wiley Bushwacker Bill Wilson was killed without his guard up (this is four years after the war). General George Patton used to sit on his tanks wearing a silver helmet, leading his men into combat. Then, he gets killed in a minor auto accident. It is hard to accept such a common death for our heros.
