Re “Red, white, blue and treason” (Phillip Tutor column, July 4):
Sir, your article about treason was very informative. Let us define treason. Treason is giving aid and comfort to the enemy. There was a Confederate States of America, to which the inhabitants swore allegiance as they had seceded from the union. President Jefferson Davis was a captive of the U.S. Army and held for several years. He kept demanding that they charge him, but they never did.
