Pop Quiz make up thing- which helped me not at all. Gunpowder Sleeves of Shot- formation of people with muskets around a core No aiming, just point and shoot Cavalry started to adopt a pistol (wheelock) with a rotating flint and steal(weight 6 lbs.) Go into battle with two or three loading pistols and once you were really close you shot Infantry made up of several different types of weapons from swords and pikes to guns and bows Maurice 1594- invented the counter march, relay volley firing Requires a new sort of discipline and it becomes more broadly applicable Ratio of shot to pike goes in favor of shot after this invention 1618-1648 (thirty years war) Gustavus Adolphus provides even more ability to eliminate the pike, standardizes the guns. Bayonet invented and the pike is eliminated. Reduced to infantry, cavalry and artillery. Need the right troops in front of the right enemy at the right time.
