Trivia:

Both he and his parents belonged to the Church of Bretheren in Christ, which opposed war and any kind of violence.

Although his parents disapproved of his entering the military, they nonetheless allowed him to choose his own career. See more »

Trademark:

Being a higher ranked General, he commanded 'Joseph S. Patton' to apologize to two privates, that Patton had slapped in the face, calling them cowards and profane names.
