In this episode, we take a look at and learn how to perform Reverse Arms. This position of the musket was used during the Civil War for funeral processions.

There are questions today, as there was then, on how a soldier performed Reverse Arms. Details can be found in primary sources including the Regulations, Gilham's Drill Manual, and the Army and Navy Journal during the time. Reverse Arms was a position that a soldier was expected to march with, according to the Regulations, for Funeral escorts. Let's see how it can be done!
