Re: Pole Weaps versus Cav Charge

I've watched it a dozen times since this discussion started. It fades at an inopportune time, but my best narrative is that the lancers charged and took shell shot from the big guns. The artillery troops then took skirmish formation and fired at the oncoming cavalry formation. There is a fade as the cavalry reaches their position, but you can then see the foot troops charge forward into the approaching cavalry where after a very short time they are dead. The lancers begin waving hats, etc in celebration.

From 1900, also from Thomas Edison's collection, speed an actual cavalry charge during the boer war, but it was against artillery and guns and not against lances
