So people (including me) talk about the “third house” as meaning the third house with casualties.
The women and children in the house in the diagram above weren’t harmed and lived to make up tales about what they never saw.
Well, shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiite, Red. Where’s the massacre, eh? /sarc
