orion-list Engels' Estimate

D. W. Engels' water estimates for Alexander's
Macedonian Army daily water ration were in the 
Imperial 160 ounce 10 pound gallon of four 
40 ounce quarts not the lesser Wine 128 ounce 
8 pound gallon of four 32 ounce quarts adopted 
by the American British Colonies before

Two 40 ounce quarts of water on a daily march
seems lavish.  I might have enough left over
for the cook doing my daily mash.
