    It was more or less easy because there arent that many politcans who take a ministerjob after they ruled (I can only think of another example in Israel) and it was kinda made easier due the fact that the last question was related to Mexico, so my thoughts were still in that direction.

    But it is getting pretty hard to come up with good questions...

    okay..which group of civilians used these flowers as their sign in Germany during WWII

    since the question was about a civilian group the answer is :
    Edelweißpiraten (edelweiß-pirates).
    They were a large (numbers unknown but should go into thousands) but loose groups of mostly Teenagers in Nazi Germany who opposed the nazis, evaded being forced to join the hitler youth, the reichslabourforce or military service. They often were involved in streetsfights with the SA, they published anti-nazi flyer (but less sophisticated ones than the Weiße Rose, usually simple short stuff like "Hitler Sucks" "Wake up, and kick the nazis in their butts"), they help deserters, or people who escaped the nazis (pows, jews etc) to hide and even blowed up SA-headquarters and had some firefights with the Gestapo and the police. Unfortunantly they got neither the puplic attention nor the respect they deserved for their actions.

    back to US history...

    A well known Civil War general is considered to have finally mastered the art of generalship in a particular Civil war battle.

    Name the general and the battle.
