“What lives must I take for fealty's sake? How much blood must stain this warrior's blade?" - Erutan, Rose of May ~ ~ I have sooo many projects going on right now, but too little energy to finish them all at once! 😫 Really wish we could get some snow this year to lighten up this dark month. ~ ~ It’s been a long time since I last worked with soda tabs for a chainmail, so now I’ve started on a new experiment. I’m not sure if it’ll work the way I need it to, but it’s a fun process. I’m also currently searching for real plate armour, because I can’t make that myself. And we all know it’s every girl’s biggest dream to get her hands on real armour, right? ~ ~ Do you have any good armour recommendations or tips? Let me know in the comments 🧡🌿 ~ ~ ~ *photo by @freyda_karlsdatter, outfit thrifted and sword from Southern Swords ~ ~ ~
The Viking shields were initially circular, Germanic type, with a diameter of about 90 cm or more, and 1 to 3 cm thick. They were made of fir, pine, willow or linden planks. They usually had a central hole provided for the location of an iron handle protected by a metal umbo. Shields may have been entirely covered with leather, but the only certainty concerns the periphery, because a series of small holes on the periphery has been observed by archaeologists on fragments of shields.
Bull Run battle ————————————-🇺🇸 Despite his reluctance, McDowell left Washington on July 16, 1861 with an army of 35,000 men. Following desertions (mainly the men whose engagement expires), the Unionist forces are only 28,452 combatants. McDowell thought of arriving in Centerville on July 17, 1861 thanks to a forced march, but the troops were not used to this regime of march in sweltering heat, the men stopped frequently to take water or eat blackberries. It was not until July 18, 1861 that the avant-garde commanded by Brigadier General Daniel Tyler arrived in Centerville. ————————————🇺🇸 His orders were to observe the route to Warenton and the surrounding area of the Bull Run, but Tyler entered further and had a skirmish (known as the Battle of the Ford of Blackburn) with advanced elements from General James Longstreet , the Unionists losing 81 men killed, wounded or missing, while the Confederates had 15 killed and 33 wounded, some of whom died later. General Tyler was lectured by McDowell in person who reminded him that his mission was to observe and not to engage in hazardous combat. ————————————-🇺🇸 Following General McDowell, a number of deputies and senators, as well as civilians left Washington for the battle site in order to witness the confrontation which seemed to be lost in advance for the Confederates. ————————————-🇺🇸 McDowel had planned to immobilize General Johnston's army in the Shenandoah Valley by an attack on Robert Patterson and the 18,000 men of the First Shenandoah Army. ————————————🇺🇸 He had informed General Scott that the plan of attack could only succeed if Johnston was blocked in the Shenandoah Valley. ————————————-🇺🇸 Thanks to informers, Beauregard was informed of McDowell's movement around 8 p.m. on the evening of July 16, 1861 , so he could prepare, he
