General MacArthur's Dad was a Civil War bad-ass..."Little Mac was soon ahead of the entire Union Army carrying the colors of the 24th in the race to the top. Canisters exploded around... as he charged up the slope. A shell burst knocked him to the ground... he was back on his feet, waving the flag high as the men of the 24th raced behind him. 'Little Mac' cleared the Confederate barricades. With a pistol in one hand and the unit’s flag in the other, he was the first blue coat atop the ridge."
