Hi Larry,

This is one of the more intriguing article you’ve posted, This being an Ohio newspaper, suggesting that the South won the battle of Gettysburg! You have to wonder why this reporter would turn the facts against a Northern victory? Was Ohio more of a PRO-Confederate hotbed than we think? I know they had pro-politicians
like Vallandingham, and the Rebal Cavalry had successful raids into Ohio! What gives with this pro-South, Ohio article?

What say you?

They are reprinting an article that originally appeared in the Richmond VA Dispatch.
