Subject: RE: Origins: Calypso War- 'Yes my mother dead'
In answer to Morwen's question about where i got the information for my website ( - I got it from original sources, mainly the trial transcript, all the depositions, interrogatories, and exhibits which are in the National Archives.

Also from contemporary newspaper accounts but you have to be careful there because there is a lot of misinformation in those accounts.

I also have end notes on parts of my site which should give specific citations. If there is something specific you would like to know about my sources, do not hesitate.

I would also like to point out that the lyrics of "Calypso War" have been transcribed and printed by Rounder Records in "Calypso After Midnight!" If you would like help with any of the lines, I have the printout which is very helpful.
