Report #088 05/03/13

DITS and DAHS
A very interesting article appeared in the Martinsburg WV Sunday Supplement of the newspaper several months ago. The article described two American Morse Code experts who lived in Virginia and participated in Civil War reenactments as telegraph operators. Jim Wilson and his Son Matt were hired by film director Steven Spielberg as technical consultants. Their job was to have a class for actors who would appear as telegraph operators in the film "LINCOLN".
