Rifle Drills and Musket Fire

A small crowd gathered to watch the soldiers marching.  We knew the musket firing would be coming up soon. 

The Sargent did a nice job explaining the various commands and why they were so important.  Even handling the ram rod was explained.  A good soldier could fire 3 shots a minute!

 The actual firing was fun to watch.  And, noisy!

 And, smokey!
Thank you, gentlemen!
