Is it Benjamin Harrison?
Southernbets,Welcome to the contest. Your entry is not correct.PJM
I'll guess Frederick Dent Grant.
Darn! The evil Nate Maas has defeated me yet again this morning. Yes indeed, this is F. D. Grant, son of Ulysses S. Grant.Good job!PJM
Fun game. Thanks, PJM. After last week's humiliation, I had to bring my A-game.
Well done Nate...great A-game.Life being what it is, one dreams of revenge. Paul Gauguin.
There is only one possible answer: The correct one! And the correct answer is Confederate major General Sterling Price!
Jim,No, Nate was right, F. D. Grant.PJM
Wow, Nate must have eaten razor blades for breakfast. I know, I know... not funny nor clever, but I do know the man is sharp! I like it when you stump people, PJM, cause I have a chance to do a little sleuthing. Of course if I got up in a timely manner on Saturday mornings, I could still guess before the game is over... unless Nate is playing!
Ray and Donna, thanks for the kind words. Donna, just so you're aware, I will be up in the hills next Saturday with my Boy Scouts, so you'll have to defeat PJM without me.
I'm curious about what FD Grant is wearing. Is it his father's coat? In the photo he looks to be in his 50s, so this picture would be around 1890, I'd guess. Was that type of uniform coat still in use at that time?
