RE: Kiss
Yes, of course it was Henry Wing reporting events pertaining to Battle of the Wilderness May 1864.
Other clues were to be Wing's horse Jess and Grant's insistence that his message be conveyed to Lincoln in person and only when alone.

It's a great story. ... and Wing was a newspaper man. So, he would always tell the truth without embellishments. .... wouldn't he? "Lincoln kissed me " Hmmmm.

Yes, we will have to take Mr Wing's word for what happened. Until proven otherwise .....
