Sound recognition
« on: January 27, 2019, 02:17:24 PM »
At the time of Little Big horn on the plains the loud boom of the cavalry carbine could be distinguished at distance over half a mile.  This was linked to comment by Reno and Benteen commands, that they could hear rapid shooting, then sporadic. A pause as both ides re -grouped. Then the same over again.  Would have been disconcerting to hear. Not being able to know what the situation was, or to go to aid those men.
