Complete overhaul towards WP standards[edit]

Irish-American Politician?[edit]

Alejandro O'Reilly was NOT an Irish-American politician, as a matter of fact he wasn't even American. He was an Irishman who became a Spanish subject and served for the Spanish Crown. Therefore, he was an Irish-Spaniard military officer and politician who never served for the United States. Tony the Marine 16:50, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

In Poetry[edit]

He is mentioned in Don Juan by Byron, Canto 1, stanza 148:

Is it for this that General Count O'Reilly,
Who took Algiers, declares I used him vilely?[1]

Of course Byron was wrong, because the General didn't take Algiers. Maybe someone could add that to the article. --DelftUser 11:09, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Natchez relation to Arkansas[edit]

It is noted in the article that the Acadians "who had settled in present-day Arkansas on the Mississippi River opposite Natchez". Natchez is not and has never been across the river from Arkansas. Natchez is across the river from the Tensas Basin of Louisiana.
