I was up on the ridge watching the last sunday battle, (remeber always check your flanks Captains). Anyways you men seemed to fire some great volleys for about 20 minutes back and forth into each others line. Of course the "Banzai Charge" ate up a few rounds as well.
I was on yur flanks, front and rear alot of the time during the event however and the small smattering of musket fire was not really that great during the whole event.
You must remember what a load it was to haul 40-60 rounds of powder and ball on the march in the war TWBTS. Many a man broke down from the weight of that heavy ammo on one side of their body while marching.
Hope to see many of you men on the field next spring?
Dusty "Preacher" Lind
