…was Confederate general Henry Hopkins Sibley the inspiration for the physical appearance of cartoon legend Commander McBragg? If the song isn’t running around in your noggin yet, go here and it soon will be.
This post was inspired by the Ayres photo below. For all you Gilbert & Sullivan fans, he is the very model of a modern major general (though when the war was over he became a lieutenant colonel). OK, so I’m no lyricist.
