John L. Hines' (1868-1968) superior leadership skills were recognized by General John J. Pershing, commander of the American Expeditionary Forces in Europe during World War I. During World War I, Hines successively commanded a regiment, brigade, division, and corps in combat. Prior to Hines, the last leader to accomplish such a feat was Lt. Gen. Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, during the Civil War.
