Thanks TD for the links. If we would have replaced the Springfields and Enfields with Henry rifles I think that would give us an edge in firepower over the European armies. I agree with the rest that the Yank/Reb was probably the best soldier of his time in the world. No wonder we had a minimum of 620,000 dead in the war.

Pender...I like the WW 2 generation of optimism. My dad was in WW 2 (Patton's 3rd Army vet). He'll be 91 this June. Its amazing the confidence they have that America is unbeatable when we set our minds to it.
