Still a good primer on the various technologies that have fought our wars for us.

/forgot to mention how us not adopting the lever guns instead of the single shot trap door guns cost us many many lives in our fights with the injuns and others...

Also, the Army's stated reason for choosing the trap door single shot over the repeating lever action rifles is that they thought the dumbass soldiers would waste too much ammunition... killing the enemy...

Go go bureaucracy.
