      There was a fondness there. It was Mac who dubbed Winnie Boy "The Supurb"
      before he had ever seen his first fight.

      Richard,

      You are absolutely correct. And if you really want to know, that
      action by Mac to place Winnie Boy in command of Richardson's division
      set him on the track towards his undying fame merited at Gettysburg.
