History tidbit about sword fighting

In the time period of the Musketeers and King Louis XIII, every sword fighter was right handed, whether he was or not.

If you were left handed, you were still right handed. The left hand was for holding a lantern, since duels were illegal and were usually held at night.

In the book For Honor Laurel is a left handed fencer and that helps her to be a better fighter than many of the men because they did not know how to defend against a left handed fighter, and had no practice at doing so.


Out of Phase: A Time Traveler's Chronicle

Book Four of by Honor Bound series

Desperate people sacrifice almost everything that is dear to them and travel hundreds of years into the past to seventeenth-century France in hopes of saving their future.

They had what they thought was a great plan, but it failed. And, now, someone else has to pick up the pieces.

How can the musketeers and Laurel step in when these powerful people from the future ask for help?

Swashbuckling, adventure fiction at its best with memorable characters, musketeers, sword fighting, superheroes, extraordinary powers, romance, and battles against seemingly insurmountable odds.
