Barefoot boy with cheek of scab

The pirate with the shock-resistant parrot finds more Churchillian twisting of sources about the Mandan smallpox epidemic in Ward's article for Works and Days, published only weeks before the start of the trial. Of course, the article is in part recycled from an earlier piece.

CU attorney Patrick O'Rourke brought up this same article earlier in the trial, but only to point out that it was yet another version of events from Ward. What he didn't do was show that this was also another and stunningly clear example of Ward using sources which don't don't bear out his story. Why not?
