Your 'understanding' is incorrect. It is also accusatory and somewhat insulting. I would suggest that you back off on that tack.
Further, if you already had the answer, why do you play word games and then become accusatory? I certainly haven't done that to you. It would have added to the discussion if you had merely stated the material. What it looks like you're doing is merely trying to pick a fight. I do hope that isn't the case. What you are doing is merely playing games which benefit no one.
I never considered the wheel issue something of vital importance to the discussion on the system. Further, if someone wanted a number, then look it up. Why would that be up to me? Because you said so? I don't think so.
I'm still looking into Plattsburg and have bought books to do that. It does take awhile for them to come in. I just received James book on the War of 1812 and bought the book you recommmended on the war in the Champlain Valley.
You apparently cannot take any criticism of the British Army. You also like to insult the United States which you apparently believe is funny. I for one, don't think it is. I also had considered you a friend and obviously I was mistaken in that idea-my fault entirely.
It's too bad that you cannot merely add your considerable knowledge of certain military history aspects to the forum istead of acting the way you do.
As I have said, I reject your 'new' idea on the Gribeauval System as it hasn't been proven. The silly games you play certainly don't add to the discussion. I also don't agree with you on Plattsburg nor on your idea that the British didn't pillage in the Chesapeake in 1813-1814. In short, your partisanship in that area render your ideas, well partisan.
I would suggest that you and I start over and work together instead of these counter-productive arguments. You do owe me an apology for that unfounded remark in your posting. And if you believe that I owe you one, then that will be rendered in kind. It's up to you.
