With thanks to Pierre Lagacé for finding this information. https://richardharmervfn101.wordpress.com/2020/08/10/bloody-savo-revisited-sole-…Follow up story for the Battle of Savo Island
Another shout out to Greg Cox and his Pacific Paratrooper blog for giving a shout out to another blogger I follow Pierre Lagacé, really important because it brings to light how histories written close to an event can miss significant details or actually spread false information because they don’t look for all the evidence or make assumptions, sometimes for national or political interests, especially if they were commissioned specifically to write a military or Naval history. Both of these men’s blogs should be required reading for those interested in WWII history.

Here’s the link Padre.
Thanks, but I already got it since the link was in it. I revised my post on Savo which erroneous account of Morrison.
When I clicked on the link it said Oups… So I added that comment. Merci for revising your post Padre.
I try to always keep learning.
I appreciate you sharing this information from Pierre.
Glad to, and changed my article on Savo to reflect the new facts and admit that most American naval historians had simply accepted Morison’s account for 70 years.
Sometimes when things are repeated over and over, the myth becomes the accepted fact.
That they do…
