James Crofts, later James Scott, 1st Duke of Monmouth and 1st Duke of Buccleuch (April 9, 1649 – July 15, 1685), was an English nobleman. He was born in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, the illegitimate son of Charles II and his mistress, Lucy Walter, who had followed him into continental exile after the execution of Charles II's father, King Charles I. Monmouth was executed in 1685 after making an unsuccessful attempt to depose James II, commonly called the Monmouth Rebellion. Declaring himself the legitimate King, Monmouth attempted to capitalise on his position as the son (albeit illegitimate) of Charles II, and his Protestantism, in opposition to James, who was Catholic.

John Jewel (May 24, 1522 – September 23, 1571), was an English bishop of Salisbury. Under Elizabeth's succession he returned to England, and made earnest efforts to secure what would now be called a low-church settlement of religion; he was strongly committed to the Elizabethan reforms. Indeed, his attitude was hardly distinguishable from that of the Elizabethan Puritans, but he gradually modified it under the stress of office and responsibility.

"And in those days cometh John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, saying, Repent ye; for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this is he that was spoken of through Isaiah the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make ye ready the way of the Lord, Make his paths straight. Now John himself had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his food was locusts and wild honey." Matthew 3:1-4 ASV

"General Johnston, born in Cherry Grove, near Farmville, Va., February 3rd, 1807; died at Washington, D. C., March 21st, 1891; was graduated at the United States Military Academy in 1829, and was commissioned second lieutenant in the Fourth Artillery. He served with great distinction in the Black Hawk, Seminole, Florida and Mexican wars. On June 28th, 1860, he was commissioned quartermaster general of the United States army, which post he resigned, April 22nd, 1861, to enter the Confederate service. He was commissioned major general of volunteers in the Army of Virginia, and, with General Robert E. Lee, organized the volunteers of that State. He was wounded at the battle of Seven Pines, May 31st, 1862, and incapacitated for duty until the following autumn. In May, 1863, General Johnston was ordered to take command of all the Confederate forces in Mississippi. On December 18th, 1863, he was transferred to the command of the Army of Tennessee. On February 23rd, 1865, General Johnston was ordered by General Lee to assume command of all troops in South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, 'to concentrate all available forces and drive back Sherman.' In the meantime, Richmond had been evacuated, and on April 9th Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia to Grant, and on the 26th Johnston and Sherman signed an agreement surrendering the Confederate army on the terms of the agreement between Grant and Lee."&mdash; Frank Leslie, 1896
