Re: Drilling in German?
I found this old thread using the search function. We are planning a potential living history event this fall in Newtonia, Mo, and the hosts have accounts by some of the Confederates saying they heard the 9th Wisconson giving commands in German. Working on this to verify that, but still am unable to find a source that gives me what those commands would be. The links on here didn't give me what I needed or don't work anymore. I found German drill for pikes on the internet, but I'm working with a German friend on what may have been 19th Century German versions of Casey's commands.
Any help or pointing me to a solution would be greatly appreciated.
