NUMISMATIC DIARY COMMENTS AND CORRECTIONS

Canadian Ian A. Marshall writes: "An observation from north
of your border: the comments in your report on your recent
Northern Virginia numismatist meeting regarding the fatal
shooting of Col. Elmer Ellsworth by James Jackson show rather
clearly how the divisions that caused the American Civil War
have never fully healed."

[Well, the ribbing was all in good fun.  I'm a transplanted
Yankee myself.  Northern Virginia is a melting pot of people
from all over.  One doesn't have to travel much farther south
to find Confederate flags flying, though.

Speaking of ribbing, I deserve some myself for the errors I
let slip.  Bill Eckberg noticed that in one instance I referred
to the Marshall House as the Mansion House, and wrote "defense"
instead of "defence", which is how the word is spelled on the
plaque.  The article Bill passed around was not the article
from the VA Numismatist, but a rewrite with a substantially
different ending.  -Editor]
