Bayonet Usage During the Civil War

This is Dana Shoaf, the Editor of the magazine, Civil War Times, on the use of bayonets during the war. From the video’s description: “Dana Shoaf talked about the history of the bayonet as a weapon and how changes in gun technology affected its use and practicality during the U.S. Civil War. He also described the difference in opinion between Civil War officers and enlisted men on how and if the bayonet should be used in battle.”

This is a pretty good presentation.
