Stupid? one of those men had more iron in him then 100 blowhards we have now. guys like them fought the British French Spanish Indians Canadians and each other. they fought for and established this country with their blood in the ground. Today we piss on them while giving the country away
I agree and said nothing about the soldiers. They were brave beyond words. I was talking about the fighting methods and the soldiers had no choice about how it was done.
I think there was a better way to fight without losing so many men.
However, don't be so quick to judge others of this time.
