Subject: A supporting voice (and a familiar name)

Fpr years, I've pointed out that te United States could not abide having a foreign, hostile power control the mouth of the Mississippi. Whoever controls any part of that river holds in his grasp the economic life of the nation.
Since this was crystal-clear to me , it occured to me that someone in the here-and-now of the War of the Rebellion prob'ly came up with this notion, too.

At first google I found I had considerable support from one chap with a keen economic and political head on his shoulders. He's a reporter based in London, working for the New York Times (I believe) He's a German refugee (a 48er) and a heroic beer quaffer (or so I've heard).
Most of us have heard his name Karl Marx. (YES that Karl Marks)
Good Union men will find that Karl backs them up 200%. For a good (and period) read I direct readers to:

Enjoy!
