    When was the first documented use of indirect fire adjusted by an observer?

    You had enough "Daniel Boone" references in there to make it easy. "Big Man" "Fess up" and the cap. Remember as a kid watching Fess Parker play Daniel Boone

    For the unwashed and unclean may I suggest in your acknowledging the answer you give some of the backstory to explain what happened.

    I assume you mean in the gunpowder stage...i.e., no trebuchets, etc.

    Yes. But if you do know of a time that non gunpowder indirect fire weapons were adjusted by an observer in another physical location, please share.

    Thanks Dazed! Never knew that.

    Reference the RHA & Hougemount, Bernard Cornwell (the Sharpe dude), wrote a non-fiction account ofg th ebattle named, curiously enough, Waterloo. In it he talks about their role at Hougomount.

    I'll have a question shortly.
