Character description

1.) Dr. Edward Fowler along with Dr. Rufus Lord, attended George Anderson (died May 13, 1856) during his agonizing illnesses, with Fowler being in charge at the end. Although they had concluded that Anderson was being poisoned with strychnine, they decided to do nothing because they believed that Mrs. Anderson, who would have been the most obvious suspect, was a devoted wife. Fowler did make a somewhat cryptic remark that may have referred to the poisoning in Jane Anderson's hearing, and there was only one more poisoning after that. The autopsy of George Anderson after his death confirmed the use of strychnine.

2.) Edward Brush Fowler (May 29, 1826 – January 16, 1896) was an officer in the Union Army during the American Civil War. He is best known for his command of the 14th Brooklyn Regiment and a demi-brigade during the Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863.
