Historical sleuthing seems to be Bradbury gadfly Robert Penney Jr.'s natural calling. Take the brooding oil painting of a young Civil War soldier that hangs in the foyer of Penney's sprawling home. When he bought it, all he had to go on was the soldier's name, awkwardly scrawled on the back by an unknown artist in 1864. Now, Penney can rattle off the life story of German-born Peter Bender, mustered into the New York Volunteer Infantry as a shoemaker, later to become a drummer boy.
