  Phony Benoni: The database had dated this game as 1955, but it appeared in the "Americzn Chess Bulletin", July / August 1916, p. 166. The players are given as E. B. Edgar if Montgomery, Alabama, and T. W. Lott of Brooklyn, New York.

ACB stops with Black's resignation on move 19, and it's quite possible the remainder is analysis, not part of the orginal game.

  catlover: Mr. Edgar and Mr. Lott put on quite a fireworks show.

Instead of 9...Qxh1, which loses, Stockfish suggests 9...Bb4+ followed by 10...Rf8.
