Hi Larry,

Interesting article about the ANV dividing into several parts each attacking a Union city, had they won at Gettysburg. They even mentioned JEB Stuart being in Washington DC with 40,000 men? Quite ambitious of the reporter, did Lee ever have such plans?? Also with regards to the ads, it would be interesting to see some from restaurants of the time, or even more so a menu??

But thanks for all you do, with these articles!

MD, perhaps "fake news" was a strategy ?

Probably a combination of hopeful thinking,poor information and not wanting to discourage the public.
