If there was an American army during the middle ages, how would they be equipped?

Technically, weren't the "Americans during medieval times" the indigenous tribes already living there?

Yes.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

Is that why you won't let it see you, why you can't bear the gaze? Because you've done terrible things.
Then there are the transgressions you never even knew you committed, those are the worst because those you can never forget, all you can do is suspect.

Dual wielding, yes but not that. More likely flails or anything similar that has as much chance as damaging you as the enemy.

Obviously, no armour.

I saw a documentary in which an American saved the country from the hated British by stabbing somebody right through the chest with the point end of an American flag

So I imagine we'd probably have something like a polearm hedge, but it's all American flags

Also, our heraldry would include 50 bald eagles, rampant.
