"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
Actually, John Quincy Adams was. Thus concludes my most obscure nugget of history knowledge.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Quincy_Adams
A man with a mixed legacy, but I've always been fascinated by him. Someday, when you have the time, you should read Wellington's correspondence concerning Jackson and his tactics at New Orleans - the British General sacrificed in that campaign was Wellington's brother-in-law, Bertie Pakenham (the Brits considered a courtmartial post-mortem for the loss). I'm sorry, but I'm not having any luck with google to get you a citation...
I'm finding some links under "Edward Michael Pakenham." Bookmarked for later. Thanks.
Thank you, Nate. I've corrected the post. :.)
C'mon, smile for the camera! Who's a loveable old ethnic cleanser? Yes you are!
Looks like Andy is lacking choppers.
"Those who don't recognize him" should use an ATM more.
lots of hair for an old guy
