Hello, Herr Kommandant!
My avatar is Col. Emory F. Best, 23rd Georgia Infantry Regiment. In 1986, I moved to Floyd Springs, Georgia, as a young man practicing law in nearby Rome. One hundred and twenty five years earlier, Emory Best was a young lawyer from Rome who enlisted in the Floyd Springs Guards, Company C, 23rd Georgia. I've written several magazine stories about him and have spoken about him to historic groups many times through the years (his military career ended dishonorably under interesting circumstances).
Well.. tried my best, matey! Alas, they all look kinda similar with their moustaches and beards :D
Was he killed in a duel by a jealous husband like Earl van Dorn (CSA) or did he kill somebody in a duel like Jefferson C. Davis (USA) did? :D
