BigDaddy BS: The Highwayman (16) "The Highwayman" 30 Sep 02


About "The Highwayman" poem by Alfred Noyes: When the English soldiers tied the landlord's daughter with a musket at her breast, how did she ever reach the trigger to "warn him with her death?" She would have to have arms like a chimpanzee. All the standard issue rifles (e.g. the "Brown Bess") for the English army had barrels well over three feet long. Anyone?
