The distance from the Mexican border to the Canadian Border is approximately 1500 miles. Assuming that the horses could travel 30 miles per day, this journey would have been approximately 50 days. What did the soldiers do for supplies? Water?

Furthermore, the mechanized detachment looked too clean in terms of hygiene and clothing after 50 days in the field. See more
