The French are given credit for the adoption of indirect firing, but it has been adopted by all modern armies. In indirect firing the artillerymen shoot at a target which they can- not see. They can shoot from the rear of a hill over the crest and hit the enemy or the target with dead- ly regularity. In fact, artillery of- ficers assert that modern field guns can be fired more accurately by in- direct firing methods, properly di- rected, than by direct firing, where the target is in sight of the artil- lerymen. Indirect firing is based on the use of the triangle, and its application requires the officers to be skilled in the use of geometry and tr...

¡¡as f. TENNEY KM a II i - ' > < '■r ' . : smg The famous cavalry officer of the Confederate army, Nathan Bedford Forrest, was bom in Bedford county, Tennessee, July 13th, 1821. He entered the Confederate service as a private soldier in 1861, and rose step by step until he became, be- fore the close of the war, a lieuten- ant general, next to the highest rank in the army. He had in his early life no advantages of schools, and almost no education, and no' military education except what he got in the war. And yet he must have had a superior mind to have accomplished what he did. He hot only was a brave and almost reck- less fighter as a colonel of a regi- ment, but he proved his ability to manage'successfully as a general large bodies of men. His work was that of a leader of cavalry, though he often had his men dismounted— some holding the horses in the rear while others were in line of battle as infantry soldiers firing on the enemy. The historical statements as to his many cam...
