Famous quotes containing the words regiment, mounted and/or rifles:

    Christians would show sense if they dispatched these argumentative Scotists and pigheaded Ockhamists and undefeated Albertists along with the whole regiment of Sophists to fight the Turks and Saracens instead of sending those armies of dull-witted soldiers with whom they’ve long been carrying on war with no result.
    Desiderius Erasmus (c. 1466–1536)

    Casey Jones, mounted to the cabin,
    Casey Jones, throttle in his hand,
    Casey Jones mounted to the cabin,
    Took his farewell journey to the Promised Land.
    Unknown. Casey Jones (l. 49–52)

    I think that for once the Sharp’s rifles and the revolvers were employed in a righteous cause.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
