It’s 1908. The Regimental Commander says “Hitch up the mules, we’re going on maneuvers!”
The Adjutant asks “Where, sir?”
The Commander points off to the horizon, “Why, out there of course!”

The Engineer says, “No, but we soon will!”
The Engineer turns to his assistant and says, “Send out the map makers!” And so it was!
