Charles Bertrand Lewis went through almost every major battle of the Civil War, either as a reporter or a soldier, without receiving a scratch.
A few years after the war ended, he was blown up along with the river boat Magnolia and was almost left for dead.
After writing of his experience humorously, he was catapulted to fame
as a comic writer using the pen name of M. Quad, and he poured out weekly funny syndicated columns for over fifty years!
You can read more about Lewis in our blog both here and here.
Here is a listing of Lewis's non-Mr. Bowser stories in the Basement. The Bowser series is separately indexed here.
