As I'm getting ready to watch the Alabama-LSU game this evening, I'm reminded of the little-known (or at least little-discussed) fact that before he became famous in the Civil War, William T. Sherman was the superintendent of the Lousiana State Seminary of Learning and Military Academy. That is what became LSU. Unexpected, no?
Anyway, as long as I'm on the topic of pre-Civil War schools, I thought that I'd ask this question: What Civil War general was married twice to daughters of college presidents? Who were the women he married and who were their fathers?
