"Now He Belongs to the Ages"


by George Barany and Marcia Brott

This "mid-week level" puzzle (15x16), which first appeared in the April issue of Natural Selections, as accessed here, marked, in a respectful manner, an important sesquicentennial in American history (pictorial hint to the right). For a bonus answer, read the circled letters from top to bottom, one letter per row. After completing the puzzle (spoiler), learn more about its subject by clicking here, here, here, and here. See also the Sunday-sized companion puzzle for a more expansive, and nominally humorous, approach to the same theme.
