A few days ago I stumbled across the awsome site of the iagenweb org. Of special interest
to me was the picture of the Belgian giant Jean Antoine Joseph Bihin. The statement below
his picture mentions that he was "a sworn-in Civil War soldier, and traveled the
country during the Civil War promoting the Union by the request of the war
department" I would like to know where that information came from and how it could be
verified. Did he tour with Barnum in Iowa? Perhaps I am asking too many questions for my
first post on this list!
Any information/advises you might have will be very much appreciated.
