  Irvin McDowell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
McDowell was promoted to brigadier general on May 14, 1861, and given command of the Army of Northeastern Virginia, despite never having commanded troops in combat.
Although McDowell knew that his troops were inexperienced and unready, pressure from the Washington politicians forced him to launch a premature offensive against Confederate forces in northern Virginia.
Eventually, the three independent commands of Generals McDowell, John C. Frémont, and Nathaniel P. Banks were combined into Major General John Pope's Army of Virginia and McDowell led the III Corps of that army.

 The Battle of McDowell   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Learning from Johnson, as he was taken, badly wounded, to the rear, the condition of things on the field of battle, he quickly ordered Taliaferro, now left in command, through a staff officer, to hold his position at all hazards, and he would soon be there with the Stonewall brigade to help him, if necessary.

 Amazon.com: Music: The Best of Mississippi Fred McDowell   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
McDowell was a contemporary of prewar blues legends Robert Johnson and Skip James, but unlike them, he didn't make any commercial recordings until 1964, when he started working with Arhoolie.
McDowell was not a guitar innovator like Charley Patton or Robert Johnson, but he sang the blues with a passion and authority that have rarely been equaled.
Perhaps because McDowell did not have the pressures to manufacture "new" blues because he was never a commercial recording artist, and, thus, in Fred's recordings get a richer picture of the way that tunes by Leroy Carr or Big Maceo informed the Mississipi bluesmen and blueswomen.

 The Jury Is In: The Ruling on Josh McDowell's "Evidence"
He first distinguishes between Pauline faith and McDowell's insistence that the Bible reveals historically true propositions, which the author calls the "reliability doctrine." McDowell's reliability doctrine is then examined from three perspectives: biblical criticism, archaeology, and philosophy.
Although I agree with McDowell that there was a historical Jesus, I shall argue that most of McDowell's sources do not provide independent confirmation of the historicity of Jesus.
Lastly, McDowell seems to have only examined superficially his own youthful conversion experience (any reasonable analysis of which would seem to confirm how young and emotionally unstable he was when he converted).

 Josh McDowell's "Evidence" for Jesus -- Is It Reliable?
Turning to (b), McDowell and Wilson state that Ignatius, Polycarp, Justin Martyr, and Origen died for their faith, and that Irenaeus suffered for his faith.[ 12 ] For their sacrifices to have any value at all as independent confirmation of the historicity of Jesus, at least two conditions would have to be met.
Indeed, even McDowell admits this when he writes that the Testimonium Flavianum is "a hotly-contested quotation."[ 26 ] Most scholars suspect there has been at least some tampering with the text on the basis of some or all of the italicized sections.
Although McDowell and Wilson claim the Arabic version actually dates to the fourth century, they provide no defense or justification for that claim.[ 40 ] Yet even if the Arabic version can be dated to the fourth century, the text would still not provide any additional evidence for the authenticity of the Testimonium.
