The RHP [A]CW

Today, American Civil War generals do battle. Lee versus Grant! Curiously enough, there are three players in the United States Chess Federation Database named…Grant Lee! (http://www.uschess.org/datapage/player-search.php?name=Lee%2C+Grant&state=ANY&ratingmin=&ratingmax=&order=N&rating=R&mode=Find)

Stonewall Jackson did not play the Stonewall Dutch, but he was killed in battle:

Mutley-Stonewall Jackson RHP 2001



An addition by General Longstreet, Lee’s right-hand man after Jackson’s death:

bnoel-LONGSTREET RHP 2003


And bnoel resigned! An incredibly lucky escape for LONGSTREET, who lived to fight another day (but not against the Union.)



And lastly, a successful Pickett’s charge (Or, as I prefer to call it, the Pickett-Pettigrew assault) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pickett's_Charge)

C. Pickett-W. Veatch Las Vegas 1986
