No individual who fought at Gettysburg was more
controversial, both personally and professionally, than Major General Daniel
E. Sickles. By 1863, Sickles was notorious as a disgraced former Congressman
who murdered his wife's lover on the streets of Washington and used
America's first temporary insanity defense to escape justice.
Dan Sickles was a member of Congress, led a
controversial charge at Gettysburg, and had an affair with the deposed Queen
of Spain—among many other women. But the most startling of his many exploits
was his murder of Philip Barton Key (son of Francis Scott Key), the lover of
his long-suffering and neglected wife, Teresa.
