move of page from "Cadwallader Ringgold"[edit]

In August 2006, I moved this article from "Cadwallader Ringgold" to the current page because the spelling was apparently wrong (one "l" is correct, not two). I made the move by cutting and pasting, which I understand is the wrong way to do it. The previous history of the article can be found at "Cadwallader Ringgold" which is now a redirect page. I have no idea how to fix this so that all the history could be on one page. Noroton 04:32, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Cut it out[edit]

I deleted this:

In August 1840, while Ringgold was away on the expedition, a distant cousin of his who was also in the U.S. Navy, William S. Ringgold, was court-martialed on charges of inebriety. After 12 years in the service, this Ringgold resigned shortly before the trial.[1].
