Answer . Good question. The uniforms of the American Revolution were very plain and there was little to no military branch identification insignia on the tri-corner hat. From the period of the War of 1812 until the Civil War (1861-1865), the United States Army Infantry regulations called for a bugl…e horn badge of slight variations on soldier's caps to identify the Infantry branch of the Army.. On November 19, 1875, the U. S. Army Regulations called for the crossed rifles insignia to replace the bugle as the cap badge of the U. S. Infantry, which followed the design traditions of the crossed sabers and cannons of the U. S. Army Cavalry and Artillery branches. By 1898, the crossed rifle insignia began appearing on the collars of U. S. Army infantry uniforms. Since 1898 to the present day, the crossed rifle insignia has been traditionally displayed on the collars of United States Army uniforms. However, the crossed rifles cap insignia has been replaced with other types of badge designs.. Reference: Urwin, Gregory J. W., The United States Infantry, An Illustrated History 1775-1918.

The Ia Drang battle in Vietnam (1965) was it's first large combat test. See film: "We Were Soldiers..." Ia Drang was an experimental engagement involving "Airmobile" units, the new "UH-1 Iroquois" helicopter (commonly referred to as the "Huey"), and the new M-16 Assault Rifle (commonly referred to a…s the "Mattel" toy by GIs). Boys growing up in the 1950's and 1960's grew up with Mattel toy guns...television commercials in the 50's/60's were always full of guns, beer, cigarettes, westerns, and war movies. Popular toy guns were the "Fanner Fifty" (from the Gunsmoke TV series), "Johnny Reb" cannon; "Wanted Dead or Alive" bounty hunter gun, a cut off lever action carbine, etc.. So by the time those boys were old enough to get drafted, they went to Vietnam and saw the "new toy plastic gun" the M-16 rifle; and called it a "Mattel.". Prior to Ia Drang, the US Army was using M14 service rifles, the CH21 Shawnee and CH34 Choctaw Helicopter, and "Airborne" Divisions already existed (those were created in WWII), while "AIRMOBILE" Divisions were only being tested in Vietnam.

World War II in Europe is generally agreed to have begun when Nazi tanks rolled into Poland on September 1, 1939. It would be another 27 months before the US entered the war. On September 3, 1939, the US Army got a new commanding general when George C. Marshall was sworn in as the new Chief of Staff…. Marshall inherited an army that was the 21st largest in the world, right behind Bulgaria. The US Army was primed and equipped to refight WWI, and Marshall had a huge task to expand and modernize, and completely reorganize the US Army. There were less than 250,000 officers and men when Marshall began his work. In 1940, Congress passed the first peacetime draft in American history, to draft one million men into the Army to serve for one year. This draft legislation came up for renewal the next year, in August 1941, and passed Congress by the margin of a single vote. The million men drafted in 1940 were not let out after a year, as they had been promised, and were generally pretty aggravated about it. By December 1941, when the US was in the war, the US Army still numbered less than two million, a smaller force by far than that which Hitler had sent against the Russians in the summer of 1941. But, by the end of the war, under Marshall's guidance, the US Army had expanded to over eight million men and was victorious around the globe. Marshall was also in charge of the Air Force, which was still the US Army Air Force until 1947, so he commanded another three million men there. ( Full Answer )

In the year 1903 Emiline Pankhurst and her eldest daughter Christabel founded the Women's Social and Political Union. Emiline's Suffragette group used militant means of protest unlike Millicent Fawcett's group who used peaceful meetings and logical arguments to get the vote. From the year 1905 to th…e first world was over 1000 Suffragettes were sent to prison and then in the year 1909 they started using Hunger Strikes as a form of protest within the prison.

Who was the general in chief of the us army when the civil war started and developer of the anaconda plan?
General Winfield Scott - a most distinguished soldier who was far too old for the job. He was one of the few leaders who realized that it would be a long war, and his 'Anaconda' plan - slowly squeezing the life out of the Confederacy - was very sound, and also very similar to the plan that the Unio…n did eventually put into effect. But it was ridiculed at the time for being too slow and ponderous, and in his frail state of health, he would obviously have to be replaced before long, so he was not in a position to fight his corner.

As the empire expanded, there were not enough Italians (citizens) to fill the ranks of the army so the Romans hired auxiliaries from the various provinces. Most times the client kings were required to supply a certain number of troops to the army. This worked out well for the Romans as certain provi…ncials "specialized" in areas where the Romans did not excel. Examples of this would be the Batavians, known for their horsemanship. There were also slingers and archers among the auxiliaries. The majority of the Roman cavalry consisted of auxiliaries led by a Roman officer. ( Full Answer )
