Dunn added, “It is time for our President to show some leadership and Congress to work on a compromise so that we not run up to the edge of the cliff and stare into the abyss.”
He noted that on the wall in his Kokomo office is an 1864 Confederate States of America Treasury Bond. “It was to pay 6 percent interest for 30 years,” said Dunn, who has written two books on Indiana’s Civil War legacy. “It has one coupon that has been clipped.”
“It was guaranteed by the Full Faith and Credit of the Confederacy,” Dunn added. “Enough said.”
