It was the hope of Mr. Hennessy and myself that this post would generate some conversation about the circumstances surrounding the origin of the “Stonewall” nickname. I don’t know if it is the length of the article or the timing – just before the weekend – but the response has been, well, less than we anticipated, or at least less than we hoped for. So here’s an appeal – what do you think? Has the article convinced you? Does it jive with your impressions, has it changed them, are you still convinced of an alternative? How did you come to know what you know? Please leave any comments on the original article.
