Fremont? (I can't remember if he served in Mexico, but that will be my guess.)

Got it in one.
Freemont 'the pathfinder' for his 1840 Mexico expeditions.

Another one. A bit harder.

Graduated last in his class from west point. His first roommate was Augustus H. Seward, son of William H. Seward.

Stardog has it. And I thought that wasn't well known!

Its your turn to pose a question Stardog.

Well, I'm stumped, whether you mean the last one alive, or the last one still in command. I used to know both, in the heyday of the FOF Generals Bios Project.

Just making it cryptic as the previous questions were breezed through.

"The last confederate general - alphabetically".

Felix Zollicoffer is the right answer. the last general in the alphabet but the first to be killed in the West having got himself on the wrong side of a river.

Your turn for a question Nicwb

Not just the wrong side of a river, but the wrong side of his fortifications at the edge (and high above) that river. In BAB mainly for kicks we're including a map of the Beech Grove defenses 10 miles south of the battlefield for those who want to play a "what if?" scenario. (Plus that lets us have a scenario for the Union's late attack on the encampment.)

You forgot also dreadfully nearsighted - poor old Felix !

OK - a question - who's reputed final (and unfortunate) last words were "They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance".
