Puzzle: What the Sam Hill?

L. Neil Smith and Scott Bieser are releasing their new libertarian parallel universe comic book graphic novel Roswell, Texas in serial form on the Web, for free. New pages are posted every Friday until the story is complete. The artwork is so gorgeous that I'm sure everybody who enjoys stories of this kind will be sure to buy a printed copy even though they've already read the story on-line.

The events in the last few weeks' installments take place in the vicinity of Sam Hill, a Mount Rushmore-like monument in the desert (please click the link and see for yourself—that page contains no spoilers for the story). Now the fellow on the right is obviously Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain), and it's a fair bet one of the others is Sam Houston, but if, like me, your memory for faces isn't all that great, you might not be able to immediately identify the others and figure out who's who…at least I couldn't, and it bugged me. Can you identify all the faces?
