RE: President Lincoln walked into Richmond...alone?
I'm sure we would like to think that the "Pickett residence call" was something that Lincoln would do-but would he? To me, his being in Richmond at that time was very risky. I'm not sure he would take what I think represented even a greater risk by making a "house call" at the residence of a Confederate general. True, he did go to the Davis office- but that was risky too, wasn't it?
