That would be "Gatling Gun Parker". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Henry_Parker_(general)American Lt in the Span Am war was placed in charge of the Gatling gun sections because all the officers wanted the glory of being in charge of the artillery, so they gave the snot nosed young Lt the ******* wanna be artillery (Gatling guns), he had no training in doctrine (which was sit back like artillery). So he did what made sense to him which was push the guns forward into the front line of the attack and directly support the troops. It had a devastating effect because prior to this the guns were used as defensive in nature or too far to the rear to be anything but harrassing in nature (part of the reason the experienced artillery guys wanted nothing to do with)and changed the doctrine.
