A Cool Little Tidbit

I found this on the National Park Service webpage

“Lieutenant Adelbert Ames of the 5th U.S. Artillery was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions at First Manassas. Ames would eventually rise to the rank of brevet Major General. He would outlive all other general officers of the Civil War, dying in 1933 at the age of 97.”
