British Cavalry Lance 1868 pattern in Southern VictoryEdit

The British Cavalry Lance was issued to all cavalry units of the British Empire in the later half of the 19th Century. During the Second Mexican War, lancers were used against the US Army, which was defending the Montana Territory during an Anglo-Canadian invasion. Although their operators were brave, the lances themselves proved a useless weapon against rifles, including the winchesters and carbines that the US soldiers were equipped with.
