"Volunteers Needed - Join the Army!” by HistoryAndLeadership
In this fascinating hands-on program, attendees learn the skills needed to be a soldier upon the Gettysburg Battlefield. Our instructor, a Licensed Battlefield Guide, solicits volunteers from the group to become “sharpshooters”. He uses his unique “rifle simulators” to train these volunteers how to handle a muzzle-loaded, rifled musket. He then solicits more volunteers to fill out a Civil War “company”.
The instructor trains the attendees to do the intricate maneuvers Civil War soldiers used on the battlefield. Attendees form “lines of battle”, perform “wheels” and “obliques”, and learn to “march in column”. After this brisk workout, attendees walk away with a greater understanding and appreciation of the ordinary soldiers who so valiantly struggled upon the Gettysburg Battlefield
