OriginEdit

Ambrose Everett Burnside (May 23, 1824 – September 13, 1881) was an American soldier, railroad executive, inventor, industrialist, and politician from Rhode Island, serving as governor and a U.S. Senator. As a Union Army general in the American Civil War, he conducted successful campaigns in North Carolina and East Tennessee but was defeated in the disastrous Battle of Fredericksburg and Battle of the Crater. His distinctive style of facial hair became known as sideburns, derived from his last name.

CollectionEdit

At a Civil War museum, a curator found Burnside's Jacket laying in a box. After trying on the jacket, his hair rapidly grew. The curator attempted to remove the hair with a pocket knife in his desk. But, the hair didn't cut. The jacket was later snagged and the curator's hair was removed with Joseph Fourier's Pocket Knife.
