Leonidas Polk was scouting Union positions from a high vantage with some other officers, when Union artillery started pot-shotting all that Rebel brass. He refused to give ground, and was cut down by a cannon-ball. I coordinated the auction at which his sword was sold, and spent a great deal of time learning about him - collectors of Confederate memorabilia are the most knowledgeable collectors ever, and it's easier to solicit bids if you're educated. Not a bad provenance for the Georgia 300.

I think I've seen that private car in person, possibly at Union Station in St. Louis. Several private cars are maintained there.
