Xerxes (0 words)
Xerxes became king of Persia at the death of his father Darius the Great in 485, at a time when his father was preparing a new expedition against Greece and had to face an uprising in Egypt (Herodotus' Histories, VII, 1-4).
It didn't meet resistance until it reached Thessalia, where the Persian army defeated the Spartans and their allies at the pass of Thermopylæ while, on sea, neither the Persian nor the Athenian fleet could win the decision in the battle that took place near Cape Artemisium, along the northern coast of the island of Euboea.
In the Laws, Plato compares Xerxes to Cambyses in that, as him, he was victim of his education at the court, unlike his father Darius, who was not a son of king (Laws, III, 695c-e).
Xerxes Knox, Private, Company G, 3rd Iowa Cavalry in the Civil War (4664 words)
Xerxes is noted as "Present" on the Company Muster Roll with a remark: "Stoppage {of pay} for 1 picket-pin and lariat lost on the march from Pilot Knob, Missouri to Little Rock, Arkansas." Xerxes is also recorded on a Detachment Muster Roll for these months showing that he was stationed at Little Rock.
Xerxes requests an increase in his pension "...on the grounds that his present rating is incommensurate with the degree of incapacity" via the firm of Taber & Whitman, Attorneys at Law in Washington, D.C. His request is denied.
Xerxes' pension is increased to $15 a month due to a new payment schedule by an Act of Congress dated February 6, 1907.
