Note: During the stirring times of the Revolutionary War, Major Lewis Lanier accused General Butler of South Carolina of cowardice in battle, and fought a duel with him, in which both were wounded. While returning home, Major Lanier spent the night at General Butler's home, not knowing that he was accepting the hospitality of his recent combatant. The meeting between these two at Butler's breakfast table the next morning, brought about their friendship, and Major Lanier afterwards fell in love with and married General Butler's daughter, Ann.
