Comic 845 - Modern History

There once was an old man of Queens
Who acted out military scenes.
From the Civil War? No,
He aped troops in full flow -
That childish old person of Queens!

Original comic here.

Both the US and England have active societies that like to act out the countries' respective Civil Wars. If the childish old man is English and so not a New Yorker, it can be assumed that he is an alumnus of Queens' College, Cambridge.
