  wwall: 27...Rxe6 looks wrong. Perhaps best is 27...Re7

After 30.Rdf1, White threatens 31.Rxg7 Rxg7 32.Rf7

<Perhaps best is 27...Re7> Interesting situation. I suspect White still wins with his big pressure on the long diagonal.

One try is 27...Re7 28. f6, for example 28... gxf6 29. gxf6 Rxe6 30. Rxd5! cxd5 31. f7+ Nf6 32. Rxf6 Kg7 33. Rxe6+ Kxf7 34. Rh6, etc. which looks like a win.

  Big Pawn: This bum whooped Paul Morphy! His bio says he lot a match to Morphy +2 -3 =0, which means it was very close. I always read about how Barnes was Morphy's toughest opponent, though I think a case can be made for Harrwitz, but this guy Medley gave a good showing for himself too.
