Civil War Infantry Tactics and Weapons Lecture

Here’s historian Earl Hess speaking on infantry weapons and tactics in the Civil War at the 2016 Pamplin Park Symposium. Dr. Hess is an outstanding historian and this is an excellent and informative lecture.

The video’s description reads, “Earl Hess talked about the different infantry formations and maneuvers used during the Civil War and when generals might have used them. He also spoke about how tactics and weaponry impacted solider experience and compared this to later wars.”
