1. Robert Duvall, one of my all time favorites. The phrase you quoted was from Apocalypse Now but his first movie I believe was To Kill A Mockingbird in 1962.

2. Traveller and then Lucy Long.

3. Tecumseh was his middle name.

4. Lee knew he did not have the strength to take Washington, DC, but the Army of the North was beginning to harass the southern capital of Richmond, Virginia. By invading the North, Lee felt he could achieve two objectives, moving the North's army away from Richmond, and should he gain a victory, the international recognition of Britain and other European states.

5. The Infantry division of the Army?

6. If we are talking about the American civil war it was a war between the North and the South. The North or Union had 23 states fighting and the South had 11. The farthest was New Mexico I believe.

7. The land was traced to its ownership to George Washington Parke Custis, the grandson of Martha Washington who owned the land upon which Arlington National Cemeterey now stands although the government did confiscate the land for military purposes three years later.

8. Alaska, Washington, Oregon and California.

9. Suicide.

10. Ross, his first name is Henry!

I'm bummed I missed out on this challenge, though I didn't know many of the answers. I got behind on blog reading- new job, training, homeschooling etc. *sigh*

I am currently working on the extrapolation of the words you gave me. Should be ready to read today- soon.
