The official AHF other eras quiz thread

Post by Marcus » 23 Aug 2003 08:52

Over in my Swedish forum we've had a quiz thread running for a year or so and it has been a great success, so I think it is time to get one (or rather a few) started here too.
The rules are very simple:
The first one to post the correct answer to my below question, posts a new question (must be on a other eras, pre-Cold War topic) and so on.


Here is a question to get us started:
What was the fate of the Confederate ironclad Arkansas?

Correct.


Dan got the answer right however as I didn't ask for the date originally, so Dan, it is your turn to post a question.

Stonewall Jackson's chaplin once found himself under attack. He commandeered an small artillery unit, and a detachment of cavalry and took charge, and defeated the Yankees. He had to resign his post, though, on account of his haemrhoids. Who was he?
