Ground Zero

Shot of the Battlefield, taken from the right of the Regulator line. The orange pennons in the background mark the position of Tryon's North Carolina Militia when the shit hit the fan.

If you've guessed that the distance is only fifty yards or so, give yourself a cigar. After the opening volleys had been exchanged, it would have taken mere seconds to close the gap and continue the fracas with bayonets and sabers.

Just imagining it rather puts a tug on the ol' "pucker string," doesn't it?
