...into sectional attack. Figures are eliminated due to hits, and when a whole unit is removed the other side gains a victory point. However, the first thing I noticed was the weight of this game; this is a very heavy box. That’s because Commands & Colors: Napoleonics designer uses wooden blocks. Six sheets of handsomely illustrated unit stickers need to be peeled off and applied to the blocks—three sizes of blocks and stickers, large rectangles for artillery and leaders, large squares for cavalry, and small squares for infantry. The map board is solid, the cards are of a good paper stock and everything is of GMT expected quality. In this manner, we begin the game with a number of command cards, usually five or six cards. Each card gave us specific instructions on how many units we can move and what part of the field they are in. There was an attack center card that let us move and fight with any three units in the Center. To begin with, forget the basic infantry, cavalry, and artillery. Artillery alone is broken into foot artillery,...

Medieval Weapons In The Middle Ages

...Medieval Weapons In medieval times, there were many types of weapons. Some of these included the lance, the axe, the bow, the dagger, the sword, the Morningstar, the longbow, the crossbow, and many more. Warriors in the medieval era did not use gunpowder much, as it was rare and not invented until the High Middle Ages. There were over twenty weapons in the Middle Ages. Out of these weapons the sword, the crossbow, and the longbow were the most useful. The sword, one of the most useful of the medieval weapons, was commonly used by knights. This double-edged piece of sharp, metal could pierce through chainmail, which was the common armor in the Middle Ages. Chainmail consisted of many metal rings linked together, making a flexible mesh-like garment. The sword could be extremely long, and could decapitate an unarmored victim in one clean stroke. These weapons could be up to six feet long, which was good because it gave the wielder, a long reach. Another advantage was the fact that there were many different types of sword. Some of these were a broadsword, a longsword, a falchion, a greatsword, and a scimitar. This meant that the opponent never knew what was coming. As much as many people think, swords were not heavy. They were only three to eight pounds. This versatility gave the wielder another advantage: quick motions. All swords had a cross guard to protect the hand, which was another benefit, as the warrior had one less dead muscle to worry about. The sword was very......

There are many different kinds of turkey calls like some are a slate call, a glass call, mouth, and box call. But, the one turkey call that is most effective is the box call.

The turkey call that is used for a gobbler that is close is the mouth/diaphragm call, this call is quiet and effective because the turkey cant see the movement because it's in your mouth. Another choice for a turkey that is close is the Bombshell turkey call that connects to the barrel of the gun and a string that you can pull comes down the side of the barrel.

Weapons In The Renaissance Era terrible because renaissance militaries were powerful and effective. There were many weapons used during the Renaissance period. One of the most widely used weapons was the sword. It was the weapon of choice for close range fights. The sword was double edged and designed to slash and cut enemies not stab. As time went on though, plate armour was made the sword could no longer cut through the armour, so new swords were made that were designed to stab. This is how the Rapier was designed and made.(LaRocca”Arms”) Another weapon used during the Renaissance period was the Lance the lance was a shaft weapon. It was twelve feet long with a sharp steel tip on the end. It was mainly used on horseback with cavalry charges. The Halberd was the infantry version of the Lance. It was five to seven feet long and was a combination of an axe and a short sword. At the top of the shaft was the short sword and the axe head on the side.(LaRocca”Arms”)...

Andrew Cowan's Victory In The Civil War

...Webb’s men, the Philadelphia Brigade unleashed their firepower into the Confederate soldiers. Webb became Overwhelmed, "the fight soon became awful. We mowed the rebs right and left but still they came on. We had to retreat," wrote Sgt. William Burns of the 71st. (Medal of Honor) Garnett's men moved forward capturing the wall. The 72nd began firing back, their volley hitting Garnett who fell dead. Webb sprinted over to the 72nd and gave the order "charge bayonets". But the noises of war were so loud, that his orders were not heard and later said "couldn't be herd, I don't suppose ten feet away." (Medal of Honor) Because he knew his orders were not heard and convinced the 72nd would not move, Webb took off towards the 69th who were still engaging the Confederates at the wall. The Confederates targeted Webb once they saw him because they recognized officer brass. Webb survived the flurry of bullets with the only injury being a graze to the thigh. (Medal of Honor)  Confederate Gen. Lewis Armistead led the way to his death as his men followed him over the wall. Webb ordered three companies of his to charge front to right to combat the Confederate movement. Cpt. Andrew Cowan's battery mowed into the Confederates. Nonetheless, Webb's position was being overwhelmed with a relentless sea of grey. U.S. Gen. Winfield Scott Hancock saw what was taking place at “Pickets Charge” and ordered the 19th Massachusetts and......

...small town in southern Arizona called Sierra Vista. Sierra Vista is a quiet gem; somewhere you could drive past hundreds of times without even knowing it’s there. However, even in its seclusion, it holds quite a few historically significant honors, and a couple less impressive but mildly quirky notions. When you take people who know about Sierra Vista, there are only two kinds; those that were there because of the military, whether it is from serving or from being a dependent or civilian contractors, or those that study American military history. Sierra Vista was established as a support community for the United States Army Cavalry post that was later dubbed Fort Huachuca. On this post was one of the most famous mounted cavalry units ever assembled – The “Buffalo Soldiers”. In 1866, six regiments of all-black Soldiers were established by the U.S. Congress, consisting of the 9th and 10th Cavalry, and the 38th, 39th, 40th, and 41st Infantry regiments. The 10th Calvary, dubbed the “Buffalo Soldiers” by the Native American tribes in the area because of the darker skin and curly hair, according to local legend, maintained its headquarters at Fort Huachuca (Frank Schubert, “Buffalo Soldiers: Myths and Realities”). The Buffalo Soldier Museum is still there today. On a more whimsical note, Sierra Vista happens to have also been home to the very first McDonald’s Drive-thru (Ethel Jackson Price, “Sierra Vista: Young City with a Past”). In 1974, the restaurant manager......

Personal Narrative: A Day At USS Arizona

...The shrill of the alarm pierced my ears. I shot out of bed, unknown to what was happening. Yells of soldiers rang through the air and I was hurrying on my uniform. As I burst out of my barracks my eyes widened in horror, Japanese fighters were swarming the air like angry bees, flying themselves into battleships, kamikaze pilots. “Cutler! Get you ass in gear, were under attack!” The colonel had a barreling voice that could have carried miles. I booked it over to him, offering my help wherever I could be of service. That’s when it happened, the plane hit the USS arizona, erupting into a fiery inferno, engulfing all of the crew and the ship, the explosion knocked us back, my head slammed into a barrel, I blacked out instantly. As I awoke, my eyes widened even more, the horror of the decimation and slaughter. Ships in flames, buildings torn in half. I was lucky to be alive. The compound was large and prideful. The American flag was valiantly flapping in the wind, I had entered the compound, wanting to go to war. “Hey son, you ready to take the fight to them?” “Yes sir!” He had handed my a stack of papers and a pen and told me to sign here, here, and here. I was determined to repay my country against those japanese for what they did. I was 6’ 5” and weighed a total of 285. I was 23 years old and with a muscular build. Ever since I graduated from my home high school, Brightwood high, I was looking for a purpose, I wasn't the smartest guy, but I could throw a football like the......

Catapults During The Middle Ages

...castle walls of the enemy. A catapult is a machine hurling heavy objects into a certain direction without using gunpowder or any chemical substances. Although catapults were mainly used during the Middle Ages, the catapult was invented many years before, around 400 BC. It was invented in Syracus, a town in Greece. The first catapult, called the Gatraphete, did not look like the typical catapult, but appeared to look more like a crossbow. The Gatraphete was sometimes referred to as the Belly Bow because in order to shoot or fire someone had to lay the bow against the belly. After people saw the amount of impact this catapult had, they built a bigger and better versions which eventually could not be held by people. This took a next step into history by allowing to put the catapult on a stand so that it could be easier to shoot and move. There are different types of catapults, but the main ones are; the ballista, the mangonel, the onager, and the trebuchet. The ballista was the earliest known catapult built in Greece. It looked like a gigantic crossbow and had two arms with no wheels. The ballista used torsion as its energy source, instead of bending wood, like others had done before. It twisted ropes or cords to get a stronger and bigger impact on the castle wall. The mangonel is best used to shoot at things that are on the ground or horizontal of it. It had a bowl-shaped bucket attached to the arm of the machine, where the rock would be placed. Once the arm started to......

What Are Medieval Weapons

...common strategies included releasing foot soldiers at the beginning of a battle and using them to ruin the enemy’s foot soldiers. Then, if the enemy’s soldiers had a bad formation, cavalry, which was usually knights on horseback, was released to take advantage of that. The cavalry was released at that time so it could kill the infantrymen. Cavalry was important for victory, but only helpful if it was deployed after the formation broke, so it could ruin the formation even more and cause chaos. If cavalry wasn’t deployed at the right time, pikemen could easily slaughter the horses. Cavalry was important for another reason; it was easier to fight mounted on a horse, swinging down, than on foot, swinging up. Without cavalry, battles with only infantry would take a very long time. Armour was also very important in pitched battles. There were two main types of armour, plate and chainmail. Chainmail had little rings and was invented in 500 BCE. Plate armour, as the name suggests, was made out of metal plates, usually steel or iron. They were invented in Italy during the 15-17th...

The Yellow Wall Painting Analysis

... The top of the armor consists of a helmet vaguely reminiscent of Roman style. A curved metal cap that covers the hair and the back of the head, the helmet is made primarily of metal and has a metal fin at the top. The body armor covers the chest, shoulders, and waist but does not go any further. It seems to be composed of a shiny substance, either horn or leather, covering the chest and chainmail covering the rest, but the actual material of the armor is beyond me. The body armor is mainly yellow and silver. Accompanying the armor is a spear and a round shield with a symbol of the sun painted on it. The armor doesn’t really remind me of anything personal, but it does remind me quite a bit of European design, which is very strange considering this was created in the Philippines. My theory is that people in the Philippines took inspiration from European styles. Regardless, there are still clear Philippine designs in the armor. The shield, in particular, does not seem to be of European design, especially the solar symbol, which looks rather Oriental. The body armor also doesn’t completely match European armor, with what seems to be horn on it. While I don’t think this armor was intended to as primarily a source of art, it nonetheless has artistic elements. The sun on the shield in particular interests me, as that could say quite a bit about local culture. I admittedly have very little understanding of Philippine culture at the time, so my best guess would......

The Rouncey: The Rise Of Horses

...The rise of cavalry also implemented the use of different kinds of horses. Most knights and men-at-arms road smaller horses. These horses were called coursers and rounceys. A courser was a swift and strong horse that was popular in hard battle as they were light, fast, and strong. The Rouncey was a term used in medieval times for describing an ordinary, all purpose horse. They could easily be trained for warfare and became the most common horse in warfare. Destriers were to expensive and coursers were preferred for hard battle, making the rouncey the most common horse among the ordinary knight.Contrastingly, the spanish used a light cavalry horse known as the jennet, an ideal light riding horse.

Heron: A Short Story

... “Concentrate!” James Heron, the battle instructor, yelled. Dain grunted with exertion and parried another one of the flying blows from Walter. The yard was filled with men wearing their garb of metal, testing their prowess against opponents, the constant shouts of the battle instructor blending with that of the steel. The castle stood towering over the new recruits, desperate to prove themselves as knights, but no one as desperate as Dain and Walter. Walter was tall for his age, standing a whole two heads above Dain, long golden hair flowed out behind his helm. He looked as if a hero from legend and was the son of a great lord. He was aged eight and ten and was already renowned around the kingdom for his ability to fight with a blade, stating that there was no one that could match his skills in combat. Dain of an age of Walter was small, with scruffy black hair, with fluff on his chin showing a budding beard. Dain was still a good sword fighter and was the son of a great knight, but he’d died in the war before he was born. His family had also in status due to his mother’s service to the king, as she was skilled at combatting the disease that spread through the city and ravaged the peasants. Dain and Walter were best friends, but that could not be seen through the savagery that they were fighting with. Dain had already been disarmed four times and he was determined to win this time. He deflected blow after blow, the others had sheathed their swords and circled around Dain......
