There's some very interesting info on the loading & firing of muskets & guns in the civil war in the book; many guns had more than one charge packed in, & the thought is that as it was rank & file ordered firing, some men just loaded but didn't fire (I mean, who could tell, right?)...there's a lot of evidence that it's a hard, hard, unnatural thing to kill our own species & it creates incredible trauma in the mind to do it.

I have little confidence in any enterprise or business or investment that promises dividends only after the death of the stockholders.
