I was driving home from Germany to the UK on leave (furlough?) when all this was happening and it was being reported live on the radio. It all sounded pretty real to me. It appears that some people make a career out of trying to prove something either did happen which didn't, or didn't happen which did. All very interesting but really irrelevant. I read that people are now claiming that Lincoln never intended to free the slaves. Easy to say when Lincoln can't answer the allegations.
