More Rebel Yells
We previously posted a rare video of the 1938 veterans reunion at Gettysburg which included the only known recording of the “Rebel yell”.
Now the Smithsonian has dug up a really remarkable video of a dozen or so Confederate veterans reacting the Rebel Yell as a group. Then nine of the old men take turns at the microphone to give individual reenactments of the yell.
It is a real gem of a video. Perhaps the most interesting part of the demonstration is how different the yell is when performed by each veteran!
