Robert E Lee
If I am correct could I choose another book as I already have the Point Pleasant book on order, pre-paid!
Thanks!

Dang! This is a tough one!
I know Tecumseh's father was killed at Point Pleasant, but I can't think of a famous military leader's grandfather who was killed here.

I don't know the answer (probably Grant?), but I'm happy the same because today is my birthday!
It would be fantastic to have a present from Osprey!
I hope I'll be lucky, so I say Grant!

There has been a slight edit to the blog post - those who have already given an answer look it over and have another go ;)

Thanks,

Ok, now it's all clearer!
Pucksinwah, father of Tecumseh, was killed.

I believe it was Thomas Buford, related to the Union General. But please do some more Revolutionary War CAMS from 1775-1783. There are plenty to choose from. I would love to see:
George Rogers Clark's Campaign 1778-79
Savannah 1779
Charleston and Camden 1780
King's Mountain and Cowpens 1780-81
Pensacola 1781
Battle of the Saintes 1782

Tecumseh! Bah, I spent ages googling famous grandfathers this morning, and I had a hunch that it was a typo!

It was Tecumseh's father. Do you know how long I googled Point Pleasant and Civil War figures' grandfathers?

I saw the question last night, and I'm like "Well Tecumseh's father was killed at Point Pleasant but not his grandfather." Thought it might be William Henry Harrison, Grant's grandfather, also picked up on the Thomas Buford thing, though he's not John Buford's (of Gettysburg fame) grandfather, may be a great uncle though. But it's really Tecumseh, oh well, should've checked back with the forum earlier.
