Confederate A. P. Hill and D. H. Hill’s division crossed the river and attacked Porter’s men despite Jackson’s absence, as he was further delayed. Their division had little effect on Porter’s army, who resisted the Confederacy quite easily. However, Jackson and his army finally arrived on Porter’s flank, and although Jackson was much too late, his arrival managed to intimidate Porter’s forces, which believed the protection of the supply line was priority.

Joan of Arc was a hero in many eyes because she helped save the French from English domination. Joan of Arc led the French army at age 17, which is almost an impossible task. “To me it seems that too many young women of this time share the same creed.
During the Battle of Wagram against the Austrians that July, Bernadotte performed poorly. Having lost a third of his men, Bernadotte ordered the Corps to retreat against Napoleon’s orders. He gave the French command no warning and compromised the whole left front of the French offensive. While attempting to rally the French forces, the Emperor stripped Marshal Bernadotte of his command in the middle of the battle, which the French eventually won. Bernadotte returned to Paris in deep disfavour and was placed in charge of organising the defence of a British invasion of the Netherlands.

Another sin that Ganelon committed was accepting bribes, this is a sin in the Christian faith.

Nevertheless, the failure to capture Cuzco on time, caused by the lack of rebel recruitment and the poor timing of the attack, turned the battle around, providing the Spaniard a chance to attack the rebels and capture Jose Gabriel and other leaders. The revolt continued; however, with Jose Gabriel’s younger relatives taking the role of leaders. Nevertheless, they too were captured by the Spaniard forces, with the difference that they were not war prisoners but rather victims of the Spanish authorities’ legal tactics to lawfully capture the rebel leaders without breaking the ceasefire they had declared earlier. This put an end to the rebellion but not to it did not vanish its legacy.
