Bio:
First appearance: G.I. Combat #87. The Haunted Tank is the nickname given to the series of tanks commanded during WWII by Lieutenant Jeb Stuart and watched over by the Ghost of General Jeb Stuart, the great military leader for the Confederacy during the Civil War. General James Ewell Brown (J.E.B.) Stuart became famous during the first Battle of Bull Run. He was placed in command of the calvary under General Robert E. Lee, but was fatally wounded in 1864 at Yellow Tavern, Virginia during the Battle for Richmond. Shortly after America became involved in WWII, the spirit of Alexander the Great assigned the ghost of General Stuart to act as the guardian of the Stuart M3 tank commanded by the general's namesake, Sergeant (Sgt) Jeb Stuart, in North Africa. General Stuart was outraged, since Sgt Stuart and his crew were all Northerners. However, the General was greatly impressed watching Sgt Stuart and his men in battle. Finally, Sgt Stuart, who could see the General's ghost, won him over by flying a Confederate flag on his tank and declaring that they would fight under General Stuart's flag. Ever since then, the General's ghost has gladly watched over his namesake, his crew, and whichever tank they ride. (There are other, different accounts of the Haunted tank's origin, but this is the one most frequently given.) Only Sgt Stuart, who was later promoted to Lieutenant (Lt), and people who are dying can see and hear the General's ghost. Lt. Stuart's crew thinks that he merely imagines the ghost and is partly crazy, but they have complete faith in his combat skills. The General's ghost is allowed to counsel his namesake, but can only give him warnings in cryptic ways. Lt Stuart has lost various tanks in battle. In the most recent accounts, he commands a Sherman tank.
