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....
