Re: [WarOf1812] Digest Number 1370
- Not every battle is storming into forts like a madman.It looked okay from my
perpective firing in the US line. Maybe your expectation's are to high for
us? As for night battle's being easier on re-enactor's because it's cooler!
Oh my dear, give your head a shake! ;^) Believe me the only time I have been
"cool" in a battle was years ago in Ogdensberg,NY -40 and 3 feet of snow!
Now that was cool ! It looked like the retreat from Moscow!
