General Kershaw did his State proud for sure.

Speaking of CSA Generals, name 2 of the 3 or all 3 Generals of Artillery and where they were from. I can't name all 3 btw.




Mr. Cobb. General Pendelton, General Stephen Lee and ? Am I anywhere near close? What Confederate Armys?:)
 
Who became the first person / signal officer / engineer to transmit a message using a flag during combat over long distances? he was a Georgian / CSA General.

At the first Bull Run he sent a message via flags to Shanks Evans alerting him his position was turned.

E.P. Alexander.
 
What SEC power house school did the Sherman work at before the war? Rumor has it he helped them develop a solid ground attack with serious firepower.
 
Who was the oldest Officer of the Old Army who took up arms vs United States at wars outbreak?

Hint, he was a Georgian and has a County in middle Ga named for him.

Are you kidding? There are so many little counties in GA you can't stir them with a stick. Virtually all of them are named after some personage or other.

I'm about 10 miles from the home of R Toombs, EP Alexander, and A Stephens at deer camp this morning. Sitting on the porch watching it rain. Where am I ??

Well that is correct. But, I was in northern Taliaferro county just east of Washington Ga and north of Crawfordville Ga. The 3 men I listed lived in those cities.
 
Battle of Tampa in '62 and Battle of Fort Brooke in '63 or '64. Neither would be thought of as "battles" had they taken place up in the major theaters of the war.

Correct and that is why I put in engagements. You win a cigar. A Hav-A-Tampa. Next question over to you.



Tampa was a major trading center and harbor for blockade runners. Cigar production came much later after the war around 1887 as far as I know.

Figured you would rather have a cigar than a kewpie doll.
