Mystery Person, BONUS EDITION

You asked for it, and you got it. The Mystery Person Bonus Edition. You all got Mary too quickly, so we will give you another chance with this one. I have to go walk to dogs, so will be away from the computer for 30 minutes. Hope you have solved this one by the time I get back.

  1. NEWS ALERT!
    NATE MAAS WILL BE BANNED FROM FUTURE MYSTERY PERSON CONSTESTS DUE TO SUPERIOR INTELECT NOT GIVING OTHERS A FAIR CHANCE!

    Just kidding.

    Yes, Nate, it is General Crook. You won bot contests today.

    Rest assured, next weeks contest will be harder. I am already formulating a strategy to stump you all.

  2. Chuck Connors, the actor from the TV show "The Rifleman", in a civil war costume. Did I get it? Did I get it?

    Actually, I have been enjoying this forum for a long time and this is my first post. I have never been able to guess the mytery person.

  3. Ha! You know what's really stupid, I often times have trouble recalling a student's name, but I have little trouble recognizing people from books I've read - go figure.

    Actually, I have a cold that kept me awake last night, so it was one of the few days that I was up when you other time zone people are up.

    If you ever have trouble finding people, I'm happy to send you "reader submitted mystery people."

  4. I love the civil war, but these military guys all look the same to me. I think it's the whiskers!

  6. ARGGGGG!

    I love trying to figure these out but when I wake up here in Alaska at 6 am and both the mystery person and the bonus have been figured out I never have a shot at winning. OF course with Nate answering them in no time at all doesn't help me? (just kidding really just envious)

    Will we ever see the evening edition of Mystery Person???

    I love the site and I want to say thanks for all your efforts PJM to keep it going.

  7. I agree with SmartGirl, I think I have a hard time with the Civil War people because they look alike. Maybe I'm focusing too much on the facial hair. Congrats Nate. Now I must do my Saturday ritual of going and researching the mystery person.

  8. Sheila, I like Civil War and Indian history. When I teach about the Indian Wars, there is so much negative that it just seems like we did a terrible job living up to our ideals. George Crook was one of the really honorable Americans in this dark time. It's sad that more people haven't heard about him. I have my students read this piece about George Crook, maybe you'll like it too: http://www.historynet.com/george-crook-indian-fighter.htm/print
