  8. Yes, DonnaB got it. . . . General Lew Wallace was in the Civil War, went on to be governor of New Mexico, and then finally is remembered for Writing the epic "Ben Hur".

  12. Napoleons habit of laying his hand into his jacket was all the rage among Northern Generals. I can't remember seeing it amongst the Southern Generals though.
