To the Editor,
I took exception to your views and examples of mail-in voting in the February 25 edition.
Mentioned was the Civil War’s 1864 mail-in voting for the presidential election. Lincoln had grave doubts about his ability to win the election and save the country from breaking apart. He was running against the former Commander of the Army of the Potomac, George B. McClellan, who Lincoln fired from that position, (and several other generals who followed him) because he and “they” could never win a battle.
