coincidence?

Jubal Early, last night's bounty hunter character shares a name with an actual person: Jubal Early on biography.com.

I'd normally just disregard something like this as coincidence, but the historical Jubal Early was a Civil War soldier who fought at Gettysburg. It's been about three years since I've read Killer Angels (the book that inspired Joss Whedon to create Firefly) but it's quite likely that Early was at least mentioned.

The actual Jubal Early bears little resemblance to Firefly's Jubal Early, but I thought I'd pass the info along.
