I didn't know, but I'm glad I got a simple name! Hugs, Valerie

Hiram? That's a strange name, and sorry if I've offended any Hirams, if there are any at all.
Andrew is my second name.

CJ Kennedy said...

I just read the Wiki article on him. The S. turned out to be a fluke for poor, ol' Sam

Birgit said...

I’d go by Ulysses too.

Jeanie said...

New to me!

Sandra Cox said...

EC, Who'd a thought.
Val, Heh. Good point. Hugs
Andrew, I'm intrigued. What is your first name?
CJ, There was some sort of screw up in his paperwork to West Point, wasn't there?
Birgit, Heh.
Jeanie, Your factoid for the day:)

Christine said...

News to me...

Elizabeth Seckman said...

I didn't know that. What did the S strand for?

Adam said...

I did know

Sandra Cox said...

True, Your Thursday factoid:)
Elizabeth, Technically nothing since S wasn't in his name, but at West Point it became Sam for Uncle Sam.
Adam, Why doesn't that surprise me? :)
