We tend to forget that war is *politics* by other means.
The great aversion to Lincoln's reconstruction plans in Tennessee,
Arkansas and Louisiana revolved around the idea that a small number of
voters would deliver a large number of Republican electoral votes (12,
4 and 6 respectively).

Guild Press has done a fantastic job in catching typos, although a few
slipped through. When cross-checked, I find that they were in cases
where the original was printed lightly or blurred.
BTW, I am always amazed at how few typos there are in the original ORs!
Boy, those folk had great spell-checkers on their typesetters!

In this instance I had just cut and pasted the text from the ORs at
www.ehistory.com I have found at other times that there are typos
in their text. I think the material there is scanned in and it is
likel that the optic reader misread things such as an 'r' and a 'v'
as an 'n'.
