Hi Larry,

Good to read newly posted GB articles from the past, thanks for posting, I always enjoy them!

I n this one we see how important not losing a piece of artillery is, seldom do you read 1st hand how hard fought it is to keep or take the enemies canons!?

Like to hear more on making the taking of artillery the objective! Do any of you know which CW battles the most artillery was captured??

Again, thanks, & regards,
"The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract."
