Edgar Allan Poe was an author and poet, famous for his dark mysterious poems and stories, including ‘The Raven’. After serving in the U.S. Army, Poe enrolled at the United States Military Academy at West Point. A popular legend states that he won a court martial by showing up to a drill naked except for a hat and a cartridge belt. In 1831, a court-martial tried the young cadet on charges of gross neglect of duty and disobedience of orders. Sergeant Major Edgar Allan Poe was found guilty of both charges and discharged from the service of the United States only seven months after he had arrived at the academy.
