Structure[edit]

I gave this article the necessary infobox, filled it out some, and put in some sectional names. Other names for them might help streamlining this page, and more info. about hie early and late life would be nice. And some of the recent edits to this article has been to change the spelling of his first name, from Irvin to Irwin and back again. In everything I've ever read about the general it is correctly spelled IRVIN.

Bio update[edit]

The date of death for McDowell was stated as 10 May, 1885; however two of my books list it as 4 May of that year and I updated the article for it with refs. Kresock (talk) 02:27, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
