Wilmington Ten Pardons

Finally some semblance of justice in this case! I am so thankful to Governor Perdue for doing what is right. I was involved with the defense of the Wilmington Ten in a minor way all those years ago, and was convinced then of their innocence. It is NOT the case that they were guilty and are now pardoned. It IS the case that they were NOT GUILTY and finally North Carolina has acknowledged that. Their lives can never be restored but at least this offers some measure of relief to their suffering. It is especially appropriate that this action occurs as we are about to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation.
