It's a simple connect, trust me!

The US Civil War
I'd forgotten about this question, until I found people Buzzing on it. The guy is General Thomas Sumter, US Revolutionary War hero, after whom, Fort Sumter is named. The building is the Appomattox Court House, in Appomattox, VA. The Battle of Fort Sumter was the first battle of the US Civil War, while the Battle of Appomattox Court House was the last. Not cracked by anyone (again?).

Could it just be?

This is a tribute to?

Sniff. Sob. Cracked, in fact, Shattered by Ajachi and TR. Dont throw accusatory looks at me. It was just plain old coincidence that there were two 'The Who' questions in a week. I dont even listen to the Who. But when you see something like this on the internet, you just cant resist putting it up.

126:And now for something completely different...

Connect these three.

The connect is The Decalogue - the Ten Commandments given to Moses.
The first pic is Ambrose Bierce, who wrote a satirical poem called The Decalogue. The second one is the logo of the National Rifle Association, which was for a long time headed by Charlton Heston, who played Moses in The Ten Commandments. And the third pic is Krzysztof KieĊ›lowski, acclaimed Polish director of Dekalog, a series of ten movies, each based on a particular commandment.
Not cracked by anyone, though I'm curious how these could have anything to do with covert US assassination plots.

It is believed this was performed by Prophet Muhammed to convince Quraysh(???) of his prophethood. Another traditional belief is that the pagan meccans asked Muhammed for a miracle and he performed this. It is also believed that the incident will repeat on the day of the final judgement. When Islam was brought to India by Malik Bin Deenar, he used this incident as proof of Muhammeds prophethood and the King Cheraman Perumal bhaskar Ravi Varma then consulted his astrologers who reported a similar phenomenon recorded by them. What is this incident so widely used to prove the prophethood of Muhammed?

Cracked by Kaushik, KAKA and Shrey
Answer- The splitting of the moon or shaqq al qamar
