your theory on poe s death
Your theory on Poe’s Death

Poe was more than likely a victim of a political gang. But some think other wise. Some think cooping was a recognized political trick in Baltimore in 1849. Also that the term could be used without requiring additional explanation. There seems to have been particular concern about voting in Fourth Ward. Precisely where Poe was found on that election day.
