RE: He Served in Place of Abraham Lincoln
PS to my last post: My comment was also made with the background in mind that he, like Robert, was put into a quite save position. I wonder if he in advance had been promised so?

PPS: Powell enlisted at 17, McClellan was 20 when he served in the Mexican - American war, and Queen Elizabeth when an18-year-old princess, joined the Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service and served as a mechanic and military truck driver during World War II.

(And Alexander the Great began his military career by leading his first campaigns at the age of 16, saving his father's life in one. Not justifying/legitimizing, just saying this was not a CW-unique/unusual condition but reality throughout history and worldwide. Sadly not even those 15/14 yrs or younger soldiers.)
