|Welcome to the board
Gen. Sickles a mental case? Well, he was the first to successfully use the "temporary insanity" defense in a murder trial. Whether he really was nuts when he shot his wife's lover or just clever enough to convince a jury he was is still up for debate.
He also visited his leg every year after the War. Odd?
Look into biography of Sickles...he is an interesting character.
Regards from NW Ohio,
