I love this stuff, to me it took more guts to fire and reload and fire again they could do this 3 times in a minute.
but to stand there in a line while taking fire. I'd prefer some cover.
I think the Civil War and rifles barrels w/conical bullet brought the dread of lookin that other fella in the eyeball, really into focus. I've been to some of those battle grounds. That was tuff stuff. Some of the round balls were also pretty damn accurate as well.
Yeah, you'd have to be made of tough stuff for that kind of fighting. We seem to be getting less personal in our fighting style with a few exceptions out there. It's nothing I would have wanted to go through.
love the pic, thanks it does bring to mind how brave the men were in that time to stand in an open line shoot, reload and shoot all while your enemy was doing the same thing...goodmorning from the seat of the confederacy.
