Since organized targetry is a relatively new activity in the course of human events, this will be a continuing  treatise on military history, which is, after all a humanities discipline within the scope of general recording of armed conflict in the history of humanity, and its impact on society.

While humans have been at war with each other for thousands of years, historical recording of such conflicts only spans six millennia. The documentation of military history begins with the confrontation of historical Iraq and Iran C.2700 B.C.  in the modern city of Basra. Over thousands of years new weapon development dramatically altered the face of war, from clubs and spears to the atomic bomb, and to the development of comprehensive targetry and simulator suites used in support of Army and Marines Corps training operations.



This series will cover the important role of The National Rifle Association and its connection with the American Military which can be traced back to its founding in 1871 by two Union Army Veterans of the Civil War, Col. William C. Church and Gen. George Wingate.  Finally, last but not least, it will cover the role of Firearms, The Musket, Flintlock, Rifle and Handgun, and indeed, Arrows, Maces and Slings.
