Re: Mysterys of Shiloh
It is ironic that I was thinking about this just before you posted it.
The way that Horowitz writes about Allins ideas, makes them sound almost like conspiracy theory. I think the whole idea could be disspelled with some good honest research into wartime diaries and accounts. I find it rather hard to belive that both sides would out in out lie about such a specific part of the battle.
