The next chapter I redo is "Another Point of View." I got so far into the book, and I realized that EE's death affected the South as well. So did the death of James Jackson, the man who shot him and was, in turn, shot by Francis Brownell. I have read a lot of diaries now, and the small booklet about Jackson, author unknown. The reactions of the 2 parts of the U.S. were very different. It was stronger in the North--more outrage. For the South, it was just one more tally mark against the Yankees.
Anyway, I think it only fair to look at "another point of view," about EE's death. Hence this chapter. I will be trying very hard to be fair to Jackson, and have already stricken the occasional snarky comment. Any suggestions??
