The battle rages on. The savages were NOT SUPPOSED to have defeated the mighty 7th Cavalry, and therefore, any explanation that could give an excuse was, I suspect, eagerly seized upon. Stories grow more lurid with time. There is probably SOME truth in nearly every tale, but I still feel that there were simply WAY too many sincerely committed natives for GAC to overcome, no matter what. You cannot shoot what you cannot see and - using contemporary tactics - even M16s would lose to clouds of arrows launched from the safety of a reverse slope.
