Classic lost cause fake news. Lincoln's last words, whatever they were, were to his wife on the way to the theater. After being shot, Lincoln never uttered a word. There were only a zillion witnesses, none of whom worked for the Alpharetta Free Press.
Sort of 'good' propaganda? I prefer facts, not 'warm, fuzzy' fiction....Whether Lincoln said that or not is in some respects irrelevant, maybe the article was intended to heal old divisions, just a positive comment to help unify people. I read the article as a positive.
Yep, ‘good’ propaganda and there’s nothing wrong with that, keep in mind that you have to look at things in the context of time, it was written at the time of the Great Depression, lots of poverty, lots of political divide and a nation struggling to rebuild itself. Anything that helps to heal, has to be a good thing, right!Sort of 'good' propaganda? I prefer facts, not 'warm, fuzzy' fiction....
