Having enlisted during the first excitement, for two or three years, or for the war,
when they saw the three months' regiments returning home after the disastrous
Battle of Bull Run, their dissatisfaction broke out in open mutiny among the men
of the Second Maine and Seventy-ninth New York. In the case of the former, sixty-
three men were sent to the Dry Tortugas, there to serve out the rest of the war as
prisoners at hard labor. The case of the Seventy-ninth New York was covered by

“The measure is stepped like this — one, two, three and a stand, and a one, two,
three and a four ..." The surgeon's cabin door opened noiselessly, and Cockburn
was aware of muffled footfalls from forward, an appreciative audience gathering
in the shadows. “No, Tom, you've forgotten the 'four' again,” he said, with some
control, for Kydd had tripped and sent him staggering. His pupil had a memory as
short as ... . . "It won't answer, not at all,” he said to the crestfallen Kydd. MUTINY ...

Admitting 'the mutiny of the officers' to be a danger to be apprehended and
guarded against, the checks against its possibility in the time of the Company are
sufficiently distinct. There were then three different constituent elements, each
acting as a counterpoise to the other, viz., the Imperial army, the local British force
, and the native army. It is not possible to imagine a perfect unanimity of feeling
amongst all the three to mutiny together. When the third alone did so, it rose
without its ...

In August a mutiny set them free, and the Audiencia's peninsular members were
jailed. The second rebellion to sweep southern Peru in just thirty-five years had
begun. The rebellion of 1814-15 - referred to at the time as the Angulo rebellion,
for the two creole brothers at its head, although now generally named for the
cacique of Chinchero - covered much the same region as that of Tupac Amaru,
although it had its origins in a different sector of society.165 It started as an urban

Overlord / The Guns of Navarone / The Caine Mutiny War is hell; writing about
war is Homeric. The settings, fighters, and armaments change, but the fervor,
terror, heroism, cowardice, agony, resentment, egotism, majesty, relief, pain,
death, joy, love, corruption, humor, and insanity abide, as does the overweening
desire to mythologize war's grotesquerie. Unlike his progeny, though, Homer
didn't bother with scoring political points. Neither pro- nor antiwar, he offered no
special succor ...
