1st Sergeant Manson S. Jolly, C.S.A.
The Myth Of His Last Ride*
This story in the
Anderson Daily Mail by
Bob Herndon in 1968 belongs to the category of 'myth'. The first problem
is seen in the mispelling of Manse's first name as 'Mansons'. Then the story
is presented as a factual 'news' account.The story actually came from a
purely fictional account found a book called 'Maid
Of The Foothills'. This 'news story' has been discredited by historians.
You just can't believe what you read in the newspaper anymore!
