History, Mystery BOO! for 5/1/2011: “Which ACW General committed treachery in a legal sense?”


And another HISTORY MYSTERY BOO! is posted. You can listen to the audio file on Audio boo by clicking the picture below.

Treason is one of those words that gets bandied about here and there, mostly in a political, not legal, context. In this week’s History Boo, we ask, by the strictest definition of the term, which American Civil War generals committed treason? We ask the question wholly absent of the fact that they were all pardoned later.

Guilty of Treason

Treason in wartime is a heavy thing. What ACW Generasl actually committed treason?

We also answer last week’s Wyatt Earp question, which had no takers!
