Remarkably similar to the story Barton told on Beck's show, isn't it?

So, did Barton get his piece of 'history' from Bendigo Shafter? Only Barton can prove that he didn't. I therefore challenge David Barton to provide a source for the story he told on Beck's show, and have sent the following email to Barton's WallBuilders "research department" to give him the opportunity to do so:

Mr. Barton,

It has been pointed out that the story you told on Glenn Beck's show on January 15, 2013 about the classroom full of armed students in the 1850s saving their teacher from a gunman bears a remarkable similarity to a story in the Louis L'Amour novel Bendigo Shafter.

To prove that you did not present this fictional story as real history, can you please provide the source for the story you told on Beck's show?

Thank you,

Chris Rodda
