    Could I ask you to not look at the SDMB Botticelli round we're done with "C" there, please?

    Previous IQs:

    Did you dictate letters to your spinster sister in Boston from far away? - Charles Emerson Winchester, from South Korea, on M*A*S*H
    Were you a longtime TV journalist with the same first name as that person? - Charles Collingwood
    Were you the last person of your rank to enter a particular room in England? - King Charles I, just before the English Civil War. No monarch has entered the House of Commons chamber since.

    Charles x3!

    DQs:

    Died since 2000?
    Political/military?
    Last name start with C?

    IQs:

    Did you write about the doings on Klickitat Street?
    Were you fictionalized as a man named Drummond in a notable play?
    Were you compared to "a rotten mackerel by moonlight"?

    BTW, I'd asked about his death being since 2000; you referred to it being before 1900. Was that intentional?

    Were you Lincoln's SECTREAS? - Yes, Salmon P. Chase
    Were you Lincoln's first SECWAR? - Simon Cameron
    Did you die at the Battle of the Little Big Horn? - Yes, Gen. Custer

    DQ:
