Interview with James Forman
QUESTION 22
INTERVIEWER:

WHEN THAT HAPPENED AND YOU REALIZED THAT HE'D AGREED TO A COMPROMISE WITH LEROY COLLINS, HOW DID YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT?

James Forman:

Well, we didn't, we didn't like it, I mean but it was uh, uh, you know, it was all right, I mean it might have been the best thing under the circumstances because it was, it was a very very difficult scene. I mean you had Sheriff Jim Clark, you know with tremendous uh amount of armed forces, or hostile forces and so forth. I mean we, we did cross the bridge, and we continued, but in that you had no, it was very little help. You know, I think we would have won out, but it very well may have been the best thing in retrospect, I mean because it was a very difficult scene. Um, yeah, go ahead.
