Lieutenant General Nelson Appleton Miles



A fine mustache that saw action in the US Civil War, the Indian Wars, and the Spanish-American War. Miles eventually rose in the ranks to become Commanding General of the United States Army, the last person to hold that title.

The mustache did indeed see action. Since Miles' upper lip hair was so strong and bushy it often held a small dagger for combat.

WOW...I mean...just wow! A whole blog dedicated to the 19th century mustache! I never would have thought this could be such an interesting topic, actually not a topic at all, so thanks for doing this. But I have to ask, are there people who are really shocked or titillated by these images? I mean, that you know of?

Smooches,

Now there's a moustache to which one could surrender unconditionally without losing dignity or social standing.

i agree with "b" -- this moustache is the stuff of legend-building.
