Manual of Arms: Drill, Tactics, & Rifle Maintenance for Infantry Soldiers During the American Civil War-Rifle and Light Infantry Tactics

Manual of Arms: Drill, Tactics, & Rifle Maintenance for Infantry Soldiers During the American Civil War-Rifle and Light Infantry Tactics

This book will be of particular interest to all those who study the American Civil War, since it details, using text and diagrams, the drills of the ordinary infantryman on both sides of the conflict. The book confines itself to the drills of the foot soldier, as they appear in the W J Hardee and Silas Casey texts. There are, to be clear, few differences between these drills, but this makes the book authentically useful from a Confederate and Union Army perspective, as these procedures were applied throughout the war. Containing illustrations original to each edition, this text has been enhanced by the inclusion of the management and cleaning guide for the 1863 pattern Springfield Rifle Musket which includes useful and interesting illustrations of the component parts of the weapon. This is a useful book for modellers, wargamers, reenactors, television and film companies, professional and amateur theatrical companies, and for parades and other events.
