military in caricature, and a comic caption on the following page. Bound in red, white and blue cloths, gilt

"(From Miss Eleanor S. Nicholson Philadelphia, December 25th, 1894.)"

Galusha Pennypacker (18441916) was

a Union general during the War

Between the States. He is to this day

the youngest person to hold the rank of brigadier general in the U.S.Army and the

only general too young to vote for the president who appointed him (or anybody

else, for that matter.) Only the Marquis de LaFayette was younger (at age 19) when

he became Major General in the Continental Army.
