To "entrench" In the academic sense, perhaps
I recently had a professor ridicule both Lee and McClellan for failing to entrench at Antietam.
Though, in this rocky place, what good six-inch deep trenches would have been is beyond me.
Much can be revealed by a visit to the battlefield. I hope to see you all this battle anniversary weekend!
