Forgive the History lesson- besides growing up with a History teacher for a mother, I had to write a college level term paper on the Battles of Saratoga/Burgoyne Campaign of 1777 ....... I LOVE Military History.

Granted, the defeat at Camden was in part due to failure of militia (but mostly due to Gates' poor tactics- he was a **** poor combat leader, and it would have been better for all concerned had Benedict Arnold killed him in duel sparked by a charge of cowardice after Saratoga, IMO) ..... Gen'l Daniel Morgan manged to use milita very effectively 6 months later at Cowpens .....
