Yes, I did copy these facts, to be honest with you I was unaware of these facts and thought they were pertinent to the conversation. I thought these facts were pretty amazing and a sad piece of history.

Doesn't matter copied and pasted or read and copied, its all the same. Few of us were there and depend on the accuracy of those who were. This way we don't get it wrong.
