LONGHUNTER 1, Well I finally decided to

Well, I finally decided to try my hand at 1812 reenactment warfare.

My Ole Pard told me many years ago that the morning muster was very time consuming with drumming, fifing, formal reports by the officers and Sergeants, prayers and a formal march in review.  It takes about 30 to 45 minutes.

I actually watched a video of an 1812 morning muster from a filmed reenactment and it was time consuming.  However, while doing the reenactment, you really get to shoot a flintlock and that is awesome.


About Civil War Reflections

Vernon has been a Civil War buff since childhood, but had been inactive in Civil War history for over two decades. However, in the early 1990s his interest was rekindled after watching Ken Burns’ “Civil War Documentary” on PBS. He particularly became interested in the Battle of Antietam (Sharpsburg) and decided to learn more about this epic struggle.
