Post subject:  THE REBEL YELL

Sound technology was not available during the ACW, but this link provides aged veterans in the 1930s attempting to give an accurate rendition of how it sounded.
For me, I hear a high pitched, drawn out, "Hey!"

I would imagine that it sounded more powerful from a mass of youthful rebels facing death, as they were running and attacking defending yanks... than these old soldiers marching up to a microphone and yelling singly.

BG Ross McDaniel, VERY interesting. Thank you for the post.

While reviewing the Rebel yell clip I was sent to another very interesting documentary of Gettysburg. This one is also worth seeing....
