comment Instances of the UN defusing serious crises
UNEF was set up after the cease fire. The ceasefire had a lot to do with US diplomatic intervention (including Stirling Bond selling threats and a NATO oil embargo), in part due Soviet threats. I suppose it's hard to disentangle countries actions and their actions through the UN, but I think we have to see the UN role as limited (although it's a perfectly good thing to mention as an answer).

comment How quickly could the roman legions march? How does it compare to the mobile cavalry?
+1 I was worried you wouldn't mention ox carts.

Hopefully I've answered the question, comment if I haven't. I found it difficult to discern what the main thrust of your enquiry was.

comment Has any US President served in a government position with a foreign nation before or after their presidency?
He was still in the army so I imagine the US. Counting US control of foreign countries is sketchy, but not hugely more than counting British colonial administration as "foreign". I don't think there are any fantastic examples.

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.

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.

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.
