Who killed the rebel General Zollicoffer?

There seems now some doubt as to Col. Fry’s killing this rebel, and who killed Zollicoffer is likely to divide and distract the world as much as the question of who killed Tecumseh.  It seems that the ball which passed through his heart was a musket ball – the pistol shot was in the side.
