Bingo, David! We tend to take an slice of time and apply that as a brush to color the duration. There were other times when it was noted that the Rebs were hungry, ill-equpped, raggedy and shoeless, but none of that translates into "all the time." It does, however, remain that the Rebs went without more often than the Yanks -- increasingly so as the months rolled by.

Most welcome was your reminding us that each negative observation was made after a rigorous campaign during which there was no time to re-equip.

Thanks.
