Subject: RE: Tom Dooley didn't kill Laura Foster?!?
Sean; You shouldn't be surprised how passionate people are about things in that area or this country. You can still start a riot by implying Robert E. Lee wasn't the best general of the time. Also, how many of them might have been decendants of some sort of Laura Foster? If the Lyrics are a truthful or fairly so account I hold with Major James W. M. Grayson who was instrumental in his capture. I quote: "Hadn't have been for Grayson, I'd a been in Tennesee." KIndest reguards, Neil
