Noah gave me a lengthy dissertation about war tactics. Part of it went something like this:
"Those soldiers in the Revolutionary War weren't very smart. They wasted a perfectly good guy to carry the flag into battle. I mean, if the flag was that important to them, why didn't they leave it back at the base? Instead, the guy carrying it got killed AND the flag got shot up. And they couldn't do a sneak attack with a big flag announcing them. Speaking of sneak attacks, why on earth did the British wear RED coats? Why not camo?"
