British Soldier regulars in a reenactment in Lexington, Massachussets.

In historic Lexington.

It is amazing to know and think that over 230 years ago; this was a common sight. Thousands of British regulars would have patrolled every street corner of the American colonies.

The British 'Red Coats'.

When America's loyalty was towards King and Country.
When America and Americans considered itself, "British"

Interesting,

Lorenzo

His British Majesty's British Army Regulars,

In march to the reenactment of the Battle of Lexington Green.

The British were ruthless in the Battle of Lexington Green.
It awoke the American Resolve.

The Surrender of the British Empire (Lord General Cornwallis) to the American Continental Army (General George Washington; The Father of The American Nation).


The 225th anniversary of the American Victory over the British Empire.

The separation between the British Motherland and the United States of America.
The Umbilical Cord was Severed.

This is the scene during US civil war. Soldiers will march into battle without armor protection, facing bullets and cannon fire. Each soldier is equipped with single round riffle and their morale booster is a band of snare drums and trumpet. This is how they show valor for their country. Actually they have shield, but shrunk to only 2 inch long and worn on their sleeves as a symbol.

During world war I, Americans called the Filipinos "cowards and uncivilized" because we use guerilla tactics and ambush. The Americans want face to face combat.

Somehow, the Americans adopted the guerilla tactics during world war II. It was enhanced when they learned how to use boby traps in Vietnam War which they also adopted.
There is no death, there is the Force

There are things that meant more than what you say...they are things that you do...

Isn't it amazing, Mr. Ferniz, that these soldiers had the bravery to march in file in condensed lines to face each the field, to load rifles, and fire. Knowing that in each battle, there is a high chance for one to get shot or killed but musket fire?

And in those days, there were no such thing as antibiotics, lest blood transfusion, or anesthetics. So if a soldier was shot in the femur, he would be amputated, with no anesthesia, no comfort aside from whiskey to dull the pain, and a piece of wood to bite on, while the surgeon sawed his foot/ leg off.

Most of the time, soldiers died of infection from battle injuries than in the battle itself.

I have a friend, a fellow history student back in Allegheny, Rob Ayhers, who graduated 3 years before I did. (class of 2005). His great great great great great grandfather served in the continental American Army. He is burried in their family farm's funeral plot.

I cannot begin to imagine being in a line of men, standing, receiving fire and wait to be commanded to fire back. Knowing and seeing friends and comrades in arms dying around me.

I honor those soldiers that died with such bravery and distinction.
