Last Sunday’s column began an answer to John Moore Jr.’s questions about the Peacock Military Academy, or PMA, a now-defunct private school with a long and idiosyncratic history. His father, then captain. John Moore Sr., taught Spanish and was one of the military instructors at the school, founded in 1894 in what is now the Woodlawn area. Still an all-boys school, it followed a post-Spanish-American War trend and became military in 1900, which meant training that for some went beyond marching.
