Mr. Paul,

One participant in the harsh words against Mr. Boessenecker is Greg Ellison. Ellison is a well known photo scammer having come to the attention of Ciivil War militaria/photo collectors in November 2006 for trying to sell a post Civil War image of an enlisted Navy sailor as the captain of the Confederate submarine, H. L. Hunley, on eBay. The captain of this boat was actually an officer in the Confederate army. Reporter Brian HIcks of the Charleston (SC) Post and Courier exposed the scam.

Over the years since Ellison has attempted to scam people with his self “authenticated” collection of antique images from Abraham Lincoln to Jesse James. Unfortunately, the unknowing and unsuspecting occasionally fall for his malarkey. Mr. Boessenecker isn’t one of them. Thus, predictably, Ellison berates Mr. Boessenecker for having the good sense to reject Ellison’s “proof” and ridiculous arguments regarding his images. All non-believers can expect the same treatment.

For some insight on Ellison:

Ellison craves attention, no matter good or bad, and consistently attempts to engage people in mindless and tedious conversations in order to keep himself and his misidentified photo collection at the forefront.

Thank you,

                Boessenecker even proclaimed that I didn't know who he was, that he was the editor of True West Magazine. Lol, that doesn't stop him from being a liar and comminting libel.

                I am very surprised at how many and who have requested the information on Boessenecker and his falsehoods. Apparently he has gotten on the wrong side of several people who are now gathering... more
    • Harsh Words are True WordsGreg Ellison, Sun Aug 25 18:27
      I only speak the truth. I fail to understand how a man as well know as Boessenecker and a lawyer to boot would put himself in such a precarious position...but he has.
