comment Did any of the US States ever attempt to secede, aside from American Civil War times?
Sometimes these aggregate or concept wikipedia pages slip us by when we're looking too specifically. I'm glad I didn't get burned over my minimal research effort to answer this question, but at least I would have learnt about the new states. @TravisChristian Good point.

comment Has any US President served in a government position with a foreign nation before or after their presidency?
I think I will answer Eisenhower, but I'm pretty sure there were more. In the US controlled far east for example. Edit: good there's another answer with that in it.

I'm looking up logistics and use of railways and might just edit this a bit, we'll see.

comment Has any US President served in a government position with a foreign nation before or after their presidency?
I thought to look at whether anyone who had served the Confederate states ended up president. Unsurprisingly, no. Sounds like the eventual answer will be no though, due to the Natural-born-citizen clause making it unlikely. I assume military roles over foreign troops (Eisenhower for example) and US military governance of subdued countries would not count.

Apparently Albert Speer says something to that effect when interviewed on "The World at War" episode Barbarossa.

comment How far could an English war bow shoot?
@mgb A hail of arrows, forcing people to put their visors down, lift their heavy shields up, walk slower, lose morale, leave horses behind etc etc would have been good force multiplication.
