The Battle of Gettysburg started off when Robert E. Lee formulated a plan to attack the Union in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Lee had the intention of drawing the Union’s men out into the open, and having his army attack them right then and there. As Lee and his army approached Gettysburg, Lee became aware that there was a shoe factory nearby, and that most of his army did not have shoes, so they started heading to the shoe factory. Little did they know, the factory was crawling with Union soldiers. The Union and Confederate fired shots at each other for three days, resulting in a rough estimate of 50,000
Foreign countries have come to believe that horse’s meat is tender and delicious enough to serve on their plates! Just last year, over 135,000 horses were slaughtered with their meat being shipped to foreign seas (Finch). Horse meat has grown to be in very high demand in foreign countries which results in many slaughterhouses to be popping all over the world. Sadly in the United States, Canada, and Mexico is the main places in the world where these beautiful companion creatures are gathered, slaughtered, butchered and shipped off to foreign countries (Fact Sheet). There is much controversy on whether the slaughtering of horses should be allowed or not because the entire process that they go through is so bad and petrifying to the point where being dead is the best option that they can possibly have (Horse Slaughter-Wikipedia).
When militarism became a huge deal, it not only meant that every country improved their army and navy, no it also meant the arms race and the government´s attitude. The Government attitude means that many generals had a huge influence on the government of the country, which led to problems, which then turned into long term problems, escalation into the war. This also meant that all the countries were very aggressive, but especially the government of Austria-Hungary and Germany were militaristic. At the time of 1914, the arm force was divided like that, that Germany had about 2,2 million soldiers, Austria-Hungary had about 810,000 Soldier and Russia had about 1,2 million soldiers. When on country improved their army and general armed force, all the other had the idear to grow, causing every country to grow bigger and better.
Racing is very physically demanding for the horse, and yearlings are still not fully developed. Extensive physical work at such a young age often leads to joint problems as an older horse, and even extreme physical damage as a young horse. Hundreds of horses die every year from racing-related injuries alone. 4 year-old filly Premedya died last year at the Preakness Stake from a fatal fracture to her leg. Another famous racehorse, Homeboykris, died from a heart attack on the same day.
Knights required years of training and practiced their skills at tournaments that included jousting, archery and combat against one another. The infantry consisted of knights who fought on foot. The cavalry were those who rode on trained horses out into the battlefield. Knights were considered brave, courageous and they fearlessly fought to protect their king and castle, otherwise known as the Code of Chivalry. These knights not only needed the essential skills to conquer during battle, but the necessary weaponry in order to fight their opponents
The people who are fighting for Spain’s colonization campaign were called conquistadors. The two types of conquistadors where horsemen(cavalry) and foot soldiers(infantry). The horsemen had an advantage than the foot soldiers because they were higher from the ground, used swords and spears, and found empires that were unfamiliar with this kind of warfare. The foot soldiers could had more weapons available because they are able to use two hands. This is giving them an advantage to the cavalry because they have to use one hand to fight, and one hand to control the horse.
World War I saw several different weapon advancements that would literally change the way the war would be fought. The biggest and probably most significant weaponry advancement was the creation of the machine gun at the beginning of the war in 1914. Even though the machine gun had its problems with overheating and jamming, it was still a major killer on the battlefield. The machine gun could fire massive quantities of bullets in just a short amount of time and across a wide area. Unfortunately, the machine gun early on, required teams of men to use it which made the soldiers operating them more exposed to enemy gunfire because they were responsible for reloading and making sure the gun did not malfunction.
However, as time went on, the Mongol empire became extremely avaricious. They wanted more and more land; more and more power. Thus, they decided to conquer large segments of land, such as China and parts of the silk road ( a trading network). Nevertheless, they were never sincerely content with what they had, they always coveted more. This forced them to become very disappointed when they couldn't conquer more lands.
This time it was 48 tanks with the 23rd Regiment supporting that would take the lead. Unfortunately, the Chinese learned from the previous days of being slaughter and had prepared antitank traps and brought up several antitank guns. They waited till the American forces were in “point blank” range and opened fire. This tactic would cause great destruction in the American lines, they would lose 18 tanks to this attack. However this new tactic would not stop the assault of the American
With all of this air, armored, and man power the decisions of a select few generals and high ranking enlisted members would cost thousands of lives based off of a “Hail Mary” plan to try and end the war before Christmas. The mission was to capture the Rhine by securing
there were two really important generals for the Confederates one of the generals, General Robert E.Lee. The general for the Union is, General George B. Mcclellan. The two Generals had been a very big threat since they had been good in school and also on the field. The Union had 75,300 soldiers and the Confederate had 52,000 soldiers. no2 one really won this war because they both retreated at the same time since so many people had died, and all around it was brutal and horrifying and a war we would surely never forget.
As the Confederate soldiers made the trek through “no-man’s land,” Union artillery hurt their lines a lot. Within minutes of making it to the Union side, the remaining soldiers were either dead, dying, or captured. In less than an hour, 7,000 Confederate troops were killed or wounded. Even with the casualties, both sides stayed strong until the night of July 4, where General Lee withdrew, but not without hesitation
