GENERAL JACOB "HOWLING WILDERNESS" SMITH
General Jacob “Howling Wilderness” Smith was court-martialed in 1902. Theodore Roosevelt despised General Jacob Smith as an incompetent drunk who ruined the Army’s good name, but actually the general was also a financial speculator, a gambler, and a swindler. However, President Roosevelt gave Smith the benefit of the doubt, and upon his court martial, Smith was merely retired. No American was harmed in the making of their colony, the Philippines.
