Baum and his troops are still trekking through enemy territory – remember, it was a hot and muggy day. The Dragoons wore wool coats and carried broadswords weighing 10-12 pounds. Although they were wearing marching boots, they were encumbered by heavy gear – and they were elite mounted soldiers, not foot soldiers!
