Duel anyone, don't second that

Task & Purpose has an interesting piece on UCMJ art. 114 as it relates to the offense of dueling. At one point Article of War 25 listed the specific prohibitions. See Winthrop's Military Law & Precedents (1920 Reprint), at page 590, for a decent discussion. Winthrop is sometimes referred to as the Blackstone of military law.

Go to page 911, in this online version.
