Hi Larry,

Speaking of Commands, Do you have any southern news articles, on Lee offering his resignation, after Gettysburg? And Jefferson Davis refusing it? Or was this kept out of the papers, so the Southern Citizens would not feel any kind of defeatism?? Any opinions out there on this??

Thanks again, for this years great CW articles!
