President cut by British soldier with sword for not cleaning boots?
No president was "cut for not cleaning boots" Washington was the only president to serve in the British army in the French and Indian war. He was an officer. Your question implies that the man was enlisted. At 13 Andrew Jackson was hit with a sword by a British solider when he was ordered to clean his boots and he refused.

Answer . A simple queston with a very complex nature. It all varies. Varies on country, which service (navy, army, etc), and war time situation. Usually it goes something like this: 1. Enlistment 2. Bootcamp (6-13weeks) 3. Additional training at a military school for specific job (5-…36weeks) 4. Training with one's specific unit (4-24weeks) 5. Deployment (ship or air transport) But this is just a general idea, like I said, it all varies. (MORE)

Step 1 Use cold water to lightly moisten the outside of the boots only. Do not submerge them in water. Step 2 Dilute a cleaner appropriate for leather to form a solution of one part cleaner and one part water. Step 3 Apply solution to a wet sponge and gently clean boots' outer surface. Rinse with …clean sponge dipped in cold water. Step 4 Stuff boots with paper towels or newspaper to hold shape and dry out of direct sunlight or direct heat. Direct sunlight or heat will cause shrinkage. Step 5 Brush boots with a suede brush or lint-free towel to restore the nap. Step 6 Use a mixture of 2 tsp. baking soda and 2 tsp. corn flour to deodorize and soften the inside of the boots. If you wish, you can add a few drops of an essential oil to create a sweet scent. Shake the mixture into the boots and let it stand overnight. Shake the excess out the next day. . I got 2 pairs from http://www.oh-fashion.com (MORE)
Boot-cut jeans are wider at the bottom of each leg than they are atthe knee, allowing room for the jeans to easily cover the tops ofboots. Shortening the jeans at the hem (bottom of the leg)necessarily removes the wider portion of the pants leg, leaving thenarrower upper portion to fall over the boo…t. The shorter the pantsleg, the narrower the bottom of the leg will be. The only way toavoid this narrowing would be to shorten the pants leg at someother point - at the knee, perhaps, or higher on the thigh. Butthat option would produce an unacceptible horizontal seam acrossthe leg of the pants. The only other option would be to open theside seam of the pants leg and insert a gusset (triangle piece offabric) to widen the bottom of the shorter pants leg. (MORE)
Stain Remover, sounds weird but it works i have done this a million times with mine! works great!
The sword may be very sharp but it is unlikely that it could literally cut a person in half, especially since it can be assumed the "victim" would be a moving target. The space between the last rib to the pelvic bone is only about 18" to 24" and at the rear (posteriorly) are the bones around the spi…nal cord. A slicing motion would have to be very, very precise to hit at exactly the right spots for a blade to completely break a spinal bones and cut the spinal cord. If the hit was high, the ribcage protects the upper body; if low, the pelvic bone is thick and a sword would bounce off the bone. As well, many of these bones have curved areas, making it harder to make a solid strike. . To amplify on the above, if the question is asking if a single blow from a sword could cut a person in half (i.e. a top and bottom half, not a left/right half), the answer is an unqualified NO. As implied above, such a cut would have to completely avoid hitting bone, as no person is strong enough to be able to cut through several inches of solid bone PLUS a foot or more of flesh. This means the only way even possible would be a slice through the abdomen, starting somewhere below the rib cage and above the hip bone. Such a cut would have to be precise enough to pass through the gap between spinal column bones (such gaps being 2-4mm or so at best). Also, the sword in question would have to be both extremely sharp, and quite strong. It would have to be sharp enough to minimize resistance when slicing flesh, yet have a blade strong enough to transmit enough power from the sword wielder's movement to overcome the resistance from the sliced flesh it does encounter. About the only sword that I can think of that could possibly have the ability to do so would be the Japanese katana sword - it can be used two handed (to maximize power), is considerably sharper than the majority of sword blades (about the only contender on that front is the Renaissance and later era broadsword/sabre), and also has a sufficiently strong blade to withstand the shock of resistance when slicing. All that said, the total amount of flesh such a blow would have to cut through (at least a full square foot of flesh, in cross-section) leads to a power requirement for the blow that is almost certainly beyond even the strongest human. Lesser feats such has amputating a arm or even leg, or possibly decapitating an opponent, are possible, as the total amount of flesh (and possibly bone) in those cases would be less than a quarter of the amount required to hack through someone's torso. From a mechanical physics standpoint, the ability maintain the speed of the blade's movement is critical to cutting - that is, the faster the sword blade is moving, the easier it is to cut flesh. However, the flesh itself exerts a drag on the blade, slowing it down. Thus, it is almost certain that the relationship of sword speed to depth of cut is a geometic one, rather than a linear one. This means, that a blade initially moving at X ft/s which can cut through Y inches of flesh, would likely have to be moving at 4X ft/s to cut through 2Y inches of flesh, or something similar. So, cutting through a torso would likely require something like 16 times the power required to cut through a leg. And, amputating a leg is already extremely difficult to do. As a final observation: swords are used in one of three methods: slashing (drawing the length of the blade down the opponent), stabbing (using the sharp tip to pierce an opponent), or bludgeoning (cauing mostly blunt-force trauma, as the traditional Scottish Claymore does). Cutting through something is called Cleaving, and is almost always done far better by an axe blade than a knife blade (which is functionally what a sword has). (MORE)

1. To stop it from going rusty. 2. It is as if the swordsman is saying "It is finished and I wipe my hands of the whole affair. Like Pontious Pilot did when he washed his hands after giving the Jews permission to crucify Christ.He did not wish to leave a stain upon his reputation.
Many of them were just hoping that they might be given some boots sometime! (Incidentally there were no left or right boots. Civil War boots were only one shape. You trod them in.)

Soldiers, after boot camp, can go to war, but often don't. They will most likely undergo some specialized training in boot camp, but might go to another camp, to learn more about their specialization and be with people who will be with you IF you even have to fight. If you're ancy about going to war…, try the army reserve. They are a part of the army. You will meet regularly and the chance of going to war is decreased. (MORE)

No. for the outside, it would be best to use a brush or similar object to brush of any dirt or grime. you can also wet the outsides lightly to help wash of any mud, grime etc. sticking to it. don't submerge them in water however.

They washed themselves with water and soap. When they had lice they were taken to big vats of steamy water while their clothes were put through delousing machines but this didn't work very effectively. The ones in the active fighting did not worry about cleaning - a lot of the time they were up to… their waists in muddy, bloody water. Just getting food to eat once a day was often a problem for the fighting soldiers. The soldiers far behind the fighting had portable showers. (MORE)
I wouldn't let him lick it, just in case. Some say that a dog's mouth is clean and its saliva has anti-bacterial qualities, but that is not strictly true.

It is highly recommended to take you…r dog to the vet immediately, as the vet can prescribe medicine that will help keep infection at bay. (MORE)

As I am a fan of Koflach boots I recently acquired a pair with liners off Ebay. The inner liner being in decent condition, needed a clean as the previous owner was clearly not one for looking after his kit!. Looking at the materials involved in the construction of the inner boot, (yes inclusive of i…ts leather elements) I elected to place the liner in a pillow case and popped them in my washing machine!. A cold wash using a non bio washing powder that works on a cold wash (In the UK I used Persil). Then air dry. The result was really quite good. I dont suspect for one moment Koflach intended their boot liners to last for any reasonable period of time., however a cold machine wash works well, un -compresses the fibres in the liners, which logically lends itself to better heat management. I also cleans up the plastic elements and does the leather no apparent harm at all. Alan Noorkoiv (MORE)

You could sprinkle in Baking Soda on furry areas inside boots. Then, use a soft rag to work the baking soda down into the 'nap', just like working it into carpet. Let the boots sit overnight with the baking soda so it absorbs any odor or dampness in the furry sections. The next day, turn the boots u…pside down and tap out the residue. You could also use the edge tool of a vacuum cleaner on low suction to gently collect remaining baking soda. However, leaving some baking soda in the fur will not hurt the boots or your feet. It will just help control odor and moisture. (MORE)
