Ok, let's not get this locked. I'm reading American Brutus which tells the story of the assissnation, Wilkes's upbringing and the conspiracy. This has really given me a new perspective on him. So, my question is, how is he perceived in the South? Is he looked upon as a hero and martyr, or as an aggitator that brought more scrutiny to the post-war South? I'd love to hear opinions from border states, deep states anywhere. Canadians, what were you taught?
