Vol. X, Episode 4

Hardee's CS Stack Arms

On location at the New Market Battlefield are CSA soldiers that would like to get some rest and coffee. But what do they do with their muskets so they are not laying in the dirt? Every soldier knew how to Stack Arms. There are many versions of this drill maneuver in the various manuals. Here, Will and these soldiers teach the version found in Rifle and Infantry Tactics Revised and Improved by Brigadier General W. J. Hardee, CS Army, which was published in 1862.
