When I googled Col. Lawrence M. Allen, I found this link, which includes quotes about his life...which may have a few exaggerations.
I include this as my Sepia Saturday entry for this week, because it does harken to the past. Unfortunately it has zilch to do with their topic this week. I apologize once again for being a wandering Sepian. For other posts that might be more on the topic proposed, drop over to Sepia Saturday HERE.
