Yet another reason to love the Smithsonian.

They're running a Who Had the Best Civil War Facial Hair? survey.

I had to go with Alpheus Williams, but it wasn't an easy decision. (I mean, the most obvious pick would be Burnside, of course, and J.E.B. Stuart's looks the thickest and most lustrous, but Williams' look Brings The Awesome in a way that surpassed all others.)
