Last evening on cable , there was a replay of a talk Mr. Alford gave in June 2015. When talking about JWB's grave he mentioned that even today people leave pennies with Lincoln's face up , insinuating that JWB will be kept "down " forever. Then Mr. Alford said that pennies are taken to Baptist Alley laying face down to suggest Lincoln will be forever face down.
He then when on to say something to the effect that people still have strong opinions.

Found this interesting as I do not recall this mentioned.

I have just started Prof. Doyle's "The Cause of All Nations". Next is Mr. Fazio's book, then "Fortune's Fool".
