POLL DESCRIPTION
Gideon Welles, Lincoln's Secretary of the Navy, was known for his unusual wig.

He bought the wig when his hair was brown, but continued to wear it when his full beard was snow white. (Yankee thrift?) He also pushed the wig back when working at his desk, and it ended up crooked at other times.

Who is your favorite eccentric figure from the annals of military history?
