I just saw a couple of newspaper articles saying that a staff officer of Wheeler's challenged Blackburn to a duel, but the assailant declined. The officer was named Baker (no relation I'm guessing). Then oddly, Blackburn and Major Hawkins of Wheeler's staff were then ordered to get outta town by the occupying federal authorities. Hope to find some more details. All this in the wake of Blackburn's attack on Wheeler in his hotel room during the trial of Champ Ferguson. I can't find a Baker on Wheeler's staff after looking at Dodson's book online.
