So I just finished watching "The Patriot" for the 500th time and it always reminds me how tough our ancestors were. To VOLUNTEER to go to war back then was something serious. Think about the pair they had to have to stand in a line in an open field and shoot a musket at an opposing line and wait for them to shoot back. They had no armor, no 30 round magazine, not 3x9 scope or 300 win mag to reach out 1000 yards hiding behind cover. Their faith and fortitude was all they had.
