And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Reminds me of the wild antlers on the now extinct Irish Elk.
But sometimes, being the unstoppable force is more important than speed.
In Roman warfare, the testudo was a shield wall formation commonly used during battles, particularly sieges and was used to protect the soldiers from all types of missile attacks. The primary drawback to the formation was that because of its density, the men were required to move in close quarter unison which greatly sacrificed speed on the battlefield.
Gary, Ace, Henry, Rob and Karen, from the heart, thanks for your support! CW
