      Hi all,

      Has anyone heard of caltrops or chevaux-de-frise (sp?) actually being used during the War of 1812? Does anyone know of a siege, campaign, battle, or even an instance when they prepared, requested to be prepared, or even mentioned by either side? I know they were used during the American Revolution, but when did they fall into disuse in North America?

      Thanks and regards,
      Brian Smith
