Re: Read Van Horn's Report
In Response To: Re: Remember Fort Pillow ()

Lieut. Daniel Van Horn, Sixth U.S. Colored Heavy Artillery

He made the first report....
...before Congressmen Wade and Gooch arrived....before anyone else could "influence" what he wrote.

In the report he clearly states that there was NO surrender-
"...There never was a surrender of the fort, both officers and men declaring they never would surrender or ask for quarter..."

He mentions not a single atrocity.

Why?

War of the Rebellion, Series 1, Volume 32, Part 1, p. 569-570.
