This is my great-great-great-great grandfather, give or take a great. He was a great man- an Alabama politician during the Civil War. He was against slavery, but fought briefly as a colonel of a cavalry regiment. As soon as he saw blood, he quit. This picture came up on the Flikr Creative Commons. I’m shocked. Good ol’ William Russell Smith the First.
