After my son having a few pet goats on their property and he loves to shoot I found this interesting quote from a Revolutionary War English General. Just sharing it, thought it was funny but pretty cool.
I have done that for a historical re-enactment at Fort Ticonderoga. Even with the road that ran to the top dragging an iron 3 pounder to the top of what is now called Mount Defiant was warm work. How the British did it, well I'll give them high marks for determination.
