This post was made as a great way to start a good eduational discussion.  Was he shot by his men?  I can only imagine what the scene must have looked like.  Bullets zipping by from every direction.  The fatal hit was made in the back of his leg, correct?  How can we know for sure where the hits came from.  I am going off of Col.  William Preston's official account.  He said he was hit in the back of the leg and also two other balls hit him.  His horse was also wounded in the attack.  I'm just trying to figure out if those same shots that hit him were the same shots that hit his horse.  Could the horse have been hit first causing him to loose control and put himself in a vulnerable position?  These are more of questions than statements.  I would just love to hear what others have to say.  Educate me please!
