Subject: Every Confederate plot in the North was fated to fail
Headley points "Every Confederate plot in the North was fated to fail." This and the fact that so many of the secret service agent, north and south, were actually secret, not on the book, not on the payroll, makes it very difficult to actually prove, to what might be called conventional (or "official story" historians)historians that they even existed. Why for example would it be such a stretch to admit that Booth actually did have connections to the Confederate Secret Service, that it was not just coincidence that he had that cipher in his suitcase (probably just a souvenir?) and all these other clues, the meeting in Montreal (a good vacation spot, anyone who's anyone is there, etc.). |
It is hard but not impossible. As official story historians still have the access to the media, as they always did, those of us on the sidelines must continue to work with what we have.
Those spies who went away from their families to never return--they left footprints. Those involved in secret plots--they could not go to their graves without setting it down somewhere. It's up to their descendants to ask where and start looking. Where could the people who were invisible in their day intersect the historical record in irrefutable ways?
