I repeat:
13) The Battle of Spottsylvania Courthouse , in May of 1864, was dominated by the actions around an odd pertrusion in the Confederate line.  What was this pertrusion nicknamed by the armies commanders?

Bloody Angle

Good Answer, but not what I'm looking for.

I take it that in your TV market Jeopardy precedes Wheel of Fortune.  All three of the markets I can view have Wheel at 7 ET and Jeopardy at 7:30 ET.

Up here Jeopardy comes first. Then Wheel.

St. Louis Browns

Ding, one point for Ford

The Browns later moved to Baltimore and became the Orioles.  On a side note, the last World Series to be played by a team that is no longer in the same city was the 1958 World Series, when the Yankees defeated the Milwaukee Braves.
