@Belfoured I believe you are correct. To unlimber, the video indicates that the limber teams, after traveling in line abreast, have to stop, have the guns unconnected from the limbers and turned toward the enemy, (front), and then the limber teams pass through the intervals between the guns, make a U turn and pass back between the guns, make another U turn and pull up behind their unlimbered gun. I assume that this would be the way it was done in the Civil War but have never seen it documented.
