I was just editing the bio of Bishop John Henry Hobart of New York and wondered if this was his grandson. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to do the research, and this article does not list his mother's name (nor does the bishop's bio list any marriage or offspring).Jweaver28 (talk) 14:16, 12 September 2013 (UTC)
This article says Gen. Ward was mustered out for misconduct at the Battle of the Wilderness, but the extensive entry does not mention him at all. This article says he received a head wound at the subsequent battle at Spottsylvania. Did the discharge reflect his head wound (was the Spottsylvania battle then considered merely a part of the Wilderness battle?). I doubt he would have been allowed to continue as general if he were already shown cowardly, etc. PTSD was probably common enough at the time but head injuries weren't that well understood.Jweaver28 (talk) 14:25, 12 September 2013 (UTC)
