    They did not teach much about the Battle of Little Bighorn while I was there. I recall poor ammunition maintenance was taught as the leading cause of the defeat - cartridges would not come out of leather belts due to verdigris. That turned out to be incorrect. I never really appreciated the battle until I visited the battlefield in 2016. I have also read everything I can find on it. It is absolutely fascinating to study with so many myths to wade through.

    If you recall, there is a column statue monument of Kościuszko closer to water https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tadeusz_Ko%C5%9Bciuszko. Well, yesterday the column and the statue were gone. Hope it is a restoration and has nothing to do with other statues being taken down all over the country.

    It has come to my attention that Critical Race Theory has been introduced at the Academy.
