You really had me snort'n on this one, Dave! And I finally had to go online to look it up, but I'll not spoil it for our Rebel friends.

Let's try to make it easier and use multiple choice:

a - Was the first soldier killed in the ACW.

b - Was a member of the group that stole the train The General but he escaped with the money and lived happily ever after in South America.

c - Invented butternut uniforms when he spilled red eye gravy on his blue pants.

d - Was convicted of fathering 17 children during the ACW.

e - Was the first person to use gator hides to make shoes and cartridge boxes.

f - Was the oldest soldier in the ACW.

g - Was the last soldier killed in the ACW.

Although there is some debate on this subject, the claim of last killed has some merit, and is what he is best known for, and as far as I know, the only thing he known for.
