I guess We have people here who know their history! I thought
this would be harder? How did you figure it out so fast?

Couldn't be anyone really expert (note some of the early moves). You spoke of history and historical significance. I probably read about it a long time ago, or at least aout the Turk. There is an interesting book about The Turk - can't remember the title, but it is easy to find it. Just do a search on The Turk on Amazon or someplace.
