Fire at Will

At a certain point the soldiers were allowed to ‘fire at will.’ An expert could load and fire three times per minute. I watched and it was fascinating. I don’t think that I could reload that rapidly especially in the heat of a battle. Anyway, I like the graphic going on here with each soldier in a different part of the process. And I was able to get the powder blast yet again.

  1. This looks incredibly authentic. The bold red of their tunics is really striking.
