General Casimir Pulaski, born in Warsaw, Poland, in 1745, is known for fighting against Russian and Prussian interference in Polish affairs and against Great Britain in the American Revolution. In American, he formed the Pulaski Legion, which utilized guerrilla-style tactics against the British. Pulaski was wounded in Savannah, Georgia, in 1779. He died days later aboard an American ship called the Wasp. His death date and body location are disputed. A 20th Century a DNA analysis conducted Pulaski's possible remains that were reburied at the Casimir Pulaski Monument in 1853 came back inconclusive.
