Learning the Basic Drill Moves — on Video

Posted by greenlakenick on February 10, 2009

For those folks who aren’t yet well versed in the fine art of Civil War drilling, Private Brad Jones found an online video training manual courtesy of the 122nd New York. The online manual goes through all the basic moves — click the pictures and it launches a cool little video. (Click either of the two pics at the top of this page as an example.)

The method behind this madness is now on video courtesy of the 122nd.

Most of this will be second nature to soldiers after a few months in the Company. But for newbies, this is a handy little resource. Props to the 122nd for a job well done.
