 "The Murder of Bull Nelson"

by Rob Girardi

Chicago Homicide Detective,

 Author, and Historian

On September 29th, 1862, a Union army general literally got away with murder.


At 6-4 and 300 pounds, General William “Bull” Nelson may have been the biggest general in the war. And by all accounts, his foul temper matched his size.

Civil War Trivia

Stonewall Jackson,  was a hypochondriac. The Confederate general thought himself “out of balance.”  Even under fire, he would raise an arm so the blood might flow down into his body and re-establish equilibrium.  (His hand was wounded when he did this during the First Battle of Bull Run). He refused to eat pepper because it seemed to make his left leg weak.  He sucked lemons, believing that they helped his “dyspepsia.”  He was most comfortable standing upright so that all of his organs were “naturally” aligned. He suffered from poor eyesight, which he tried to treat by dunking his head into a basin of cold water, eyes open. And yet, he once told a captain that he felt “as safe in battle as in bed.”
