Follow-Up: The Message to Garcia

From the post a couple days ago...

The story of the Message to Garcia.

"Where," asked President McKinley of Colonel Arthur Wagner, head of the Bureau of Military Intelligence, "where can I find a man who will carry a message to Garcia?"

The reply was prompt. "There is a young officer here in Washington; a lieutenant named Rowan, who will carry it for you!"
Seems that Andrew Summers Rowan was a hell of a guy...
