Larry,

Forgive me for stating the obvious, but since we know how the story ended, it’s too easy to forget how frightening things looked at the time for the people who supported the Union. Even with our hindsight, it’s accepted by commentators and scholars that this really was a critical moment for the North. Your newspaper articles give us the necessary vignettes that help us to appreciate the sense of alarm that prevailed in September 1862.

Regards, Phil
