Pakenham, Edward Michael “Ned”–#AtoZChallenge “P”
Welcome to “P” in the A to Z Challenge 2017. The 1st Duke of Wellington is my theme for this year’s Challenge.
Edward Michael “Ned” Pakenham was one of Kitty’s brothers and served under his brother-in-law, the Duke of Wellington, in the Peninsular War. At the very young age of 16, the Pakenhams purchased Ned’s commission into the 92nd Regiment of foot.
The book was written by Eliza Pakenham.I hate to be lazy with these posts, but I am going to be on vacation all next week and need to finish by the time I leave so I am going have to make these posts shorter with the help of some good links.
