Sanpaku

 

According to traditional Chinese and Japanese face reading, the eye is composed of two parts, the yin (black, iris and pupil) and the yang (white, sclera). The visibility of the sclera beneath the iris is said to represent physical imbalance in the body, and is claimed to be present in alcoholics, drug addicts, and people who over-consume sugar or grain. Conversely, the visibility of the upper sclera is said to be an indication of mental imbalance in people such as psychotics, murderers, and anyone rageful. In either condition, it is believed that these people attract accidents and violence.

Kind of explains the entire "Wait until you see the whites of their eyes" thing...doesn't it.

viz:

 

659. At two thousand yards, a line of infantry looks like a black line, with a bright line over it;

cavalry seems a thicker line, with the upper edge broken or notched. The movements can be

recognized.

At twelve hundred to fifteen hundred yards, cavalry can be distinguished readily from infantry;

the ranks of the latter are visible at twelve hundreds yards.

At one thousand yards, the line of the heads and the motions of the legs of men of the infantry

are visible, and the horses’ heads of cavalry can be distinguished.

At eight hundred yards, the upper outline of the men are visible of infantry, and, if cavalry, you

can distinguish the motions of the horses’ legs.

At six hundred yards, men and horses are distinctly visible, but colors are not distinguishable,

except white; the kind of head-dress can be recognized.

At four hundred yards, the ornaments are visible on the head-dress, and colors are

distinguishable.

At two hundred yards, the men’s heads are distinctly visible.

At one hundred and fifty to two hundred yards, you can see the line of the men’s eyes.

At eighty yards, the men’s eyes are distinct points.

At twenty-five to thirty yards, you can see the white of the eye.

So what you want is to not be able to see the white above the eye or below the eye, correct?

 

I took my glasses off so there would not be any glare.

Considering the guide was written in 1864, with muzzleloader being the primary weapon, 400 yards was still beyond likely engagement range. 
 

As Sedgwick said, “They couldn’t hit an elephant at this dist . . . .”
