William MacRae in "The Last Reunion"Edit

When John Houston Thorpe entered the afterlife, he found himself under the command of General William McRae[1] at an otherworldly recreation of the Siege of Petersburg. McRae commanded to his troops: "Don't fire a gun now, but dash for the enemy." The gambit was risky, but it paid off.[2]
