That’s how a spokesman for the National Archives describes the actions of archivist Thomas Lowry, who changed the date on a document that contained a pardon by Lincoln of an army deserter. Lowry admits it. The date was changed from 1864 to 1865 so that Lowry could claim that The Most Compassionate Man in World History pardoned a deserter as one of the very last things he did before he was assassinated. He was a compassionate little angel to the end, says the lying Lowry, author of Sexual Misbehavior During the Civil War.
Lowry is also the author of the book, Don’t Shoot That Boy, which is a ridiculous piece of Lincoln idolatry that goes on and on about how super, super “compassionate” Lincoln was regarding deserters. This is the opposite of the truth. In reality, the Lincoln administration gruesomely executed hundreds, perhaps thousands of deserters, parading them in front of their fellow soldiers to be executed in the last two years of the war.
