Well now, we have here a bald faced liar. Who's the bald faced liar? Col. Daniel Bonham and for good measure throw in the author . Do you think for 2 seconds that federal officer Lt. Ferris was sitting in the Col. Daniel Bonham home chit-chatting with a Confederate Col. Come on now. That defies logic. And this Scott fellow ,John Scott, swears up and down that Col. Bonham claimed he witness the entire shoot out. That right there tells you how valid John Scott accounts are. How valid? Keep your bets in your pocket, mark it to entertainment
