    Don't know how you did it, jewelerguy, but I think you identified him.
    General William Shafter ... nicknamed Pecos Bill.

    I'm beginning to realize I've gone through life without knowing what anything is ...

    Another terrific ID! Well done, everyone.

    Frankly, I've never heard of Shafter. He seems like a notable man in our history.

    While doing the research on him I came across this picture:

    It shows "old women" pulling down a statue of Shafter, Dewey, and McKinley. The "old women" are labelled with the names of the prominent politicians of the day. Published 1899 in Puck magazine - the first political satire publication.

    I only posted this to show that the more things change, the more they stay the same...
