Something that I've been wondering about. In the American Civil War, the armor they wore was like nothing but cloth. begging the question, why didn't the Confederates use bows and arrows against the Union? Not as a complete replacement for guns, but as a kind of backup artillery? The Confederates could have been trained to use them. Get enough of those things in the air raining down on the US soldiers that were standing in a straight line, and they might have taken out quite a few. Like what the Persians did to the Spartans in 300, where their arrows blocked out the sun or something like that. They might have caused a few casulaties and confused the US soldiers enough to turn the tide of a few battles, or at least have the CS preform better. That begs the question of why not?
