  Major John Andre
The young Andre was a charismatic and charming man whose manners and advanced education set him apart from his contemporaries in England.
Andre was present at the Battle of Brandywine, Grey's bloody night raid, known as the Paoli Massacre, the Battle of Germantown, the British occupation of Philadelphia, the Battle of Monmouth, and Grey's brutal raids of 1778 in Massachusetts and New Jersey.
Andre was imprisoned at Tappan, New York, and on September 29, 1780, he was found guilty of being behind American lines "under a feigned name and in a disguised habit." Andre was hanged as a spy at noon on October 2, 1780.

 34931-7-I - Andre Brigham Young, Appellant/Cross-Resp. v. State of Washington, Respondent/Cross-App. File Date: ...
Young next challenges RCW 71.09.090(2) on constitutional grounds, arguing that the term 'safe' is unconstitutionally vague in both the 1991 and the 1995 versions of the statute.
Young claims that he was entitled to a trial on all the prerequisites for commitment in 1994 under In re Brooks.24 We reject this argument because the Supreme Court overruled portions of its Brooks opinion in In re Thorell,25 and the overruled portions are relevant here.
In Young, this court held the legislative intent of the statute is not to punish detainees and RCW 71.09 is civil, not criminal, in nature in both 'purpose and effect.'.

 Andre
But the young French men and women who found themselves in New France after a long and sometimes hazardous voyage, were never so loyal to their crown that they did not soon seek and gain the new opportunities of the frontier even in violation of royal restrictions and edicts.
André was referred to as "the Spaniard," not only for his dusky complexion, but the fact that he was actually born in Burgoes, Spain, to a Basque mother and a Frenchman, and thus was probably as much Spanish in culture as he was French in character.
It is evident then that André settled his young family early on the south shore of the St. Lawrence opposite the Isle de Montreal for the main reason of participating in the fur trade, much of which activity was probably beyond the purview of control by the Canadian authorities of the time.

 Tribute to Andre the Giant
Andre The Giant was born Andre Rousimoff in a small farming community in France on May 19, 1946.
Andre was the ultimate unbeatable equalizer for regional fan favorites, and fans always knew in the back of their mind's that if things ever looked too bleak for the "good guys", that Andre could always come in and straighten the territory out with 2 or 3 matches.
Andre was often considered the "Uncrowned World Champion" during most of his career until his dubious and forgetable (had it not been so bizarre) WWF World Title "victory" over Hulk Hogan.

 Catholic Saints - Blessed Andre Bessette
André had worked at a number of unskilled jobs in Canada and the United States before he entered Holy Cross, so as a humble lay brother, he joyfully washed floors and windows, cleaned lamps, carried firewood, and worked as a porter and messenger--all without a single complaint.
André, along with several other brothers and students, began planting medals of the saint on the property.
André realized that a priest was needed, and he was given a young priest with failing eyesight to help out.

Young presented the updated report at his 2002 show cause hearing, but the trial court again denied him a full evidentiary hearing, finding he had not established probable cause that his condition had 'so changed' that he no longer met the definition of an SVP.
The State is free to challenge the effect of Young's aging on his propensity to reoffend and the credibility of the remainder of Dr. Barbaree's assessment at an evidentiary hearing.
Young also notes there have been significant changes in risk assessment since 1991, and the actuarial tools Dr. Barbaree used in his assessment were not available when Young was originally committed.
