    Yes, that's the man Sloniksp. Abner Doubleday who invented baseball, served in the Mexican-American War and the Seminole Indian Wars and fought in a number of major Civil War battles including Second Bull Run, South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville and later went on to serve in a pivital role in the Battle of Gettysburg, fired the first shots for the Union at Fort Sumter.

    You're up to bat Slon.

    Something told me that you might get this one ;)

    Plexiglass would have also been acceptable.

    Good job Kai, your turn!

    From Boreman(sp) in 41,
    now the tough one...
    to make the ol dolf-ster "giddy" when she jumped ?
    because Boreman had too many puppies (same reason others have/get puppies)(population control) ?
    to test suicide pills ?
    to make/insure/breed more "German Sheperd" the master dog race ?
    to replace Eva on cold nights ?

    I give up.
    Victory is yours.

    I'm hooked now, tell the WHY ? I hope it wasn't just a "bribe" for points. To "Schmooze" the tyrant so he could be more easily manipulated.
    Reveal the dirty details.

    and ask another, kind Sir.

    Ok!

    It was after Stalingrad that Bormann thought that a new dog might make Hitler smile again....so he gave him Blondi!

    --------

    New question:

    Who was the very-famous-to-be German General who was sent to observe Rommel and his actions in april 1941?

    Jan Smuts?

    Anyway, an interesting fact on the man:

    "Smuts' importance to the Imperial war effort was emphasised by a quite audacious plan, proposed as early as 1940, to appoint Smuts as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, should Churchill die or otherwise become incapacitated during the war. "
