While it does give away your position, and the panic it created had the ability to unnerve even seasoned troops. "Everyone ran as if pursued by his own personal devil." Whole Regiments ran, the majority w/o firing a shot.

It is hard for us to understands it's impact "today" but it seemed to tap into something primal.

I am a hopeless stick in the mud. With all due respect. Would you have asked me to either rejoice or find some place else, if I turned out to be Black?

Mercator, I could give a dam less about your color...I respect my heritage...Does being black resolve you from being the color that sold the slave to the south?...I will be at our 150th reunion of the last battle at Fort Blakely (5 days after Lee surrendered)...My GGF fought at that battle,we have never in my family thought slaves were right to own...we were invaded by a superior Northern Army, and we lost(temporarily)...The fight goes on...until the South is on equal footing..I fly the First Confederate Flag at my home, with the Stars and Stripes higher and out front... Am I loyal,yes to my state and the Constitution,not your color..

The civil war was about state and federal rights. It was about how the government was run. People have this false idea in their heads that the civil war was about slavery. In fact 5 out of every 8 slaves were white. England was shopping people over that were either criminals or were in some sort of debt and selling them as slaves/indentured servants. There were more slaves per capita in the north and Abraham Lincoln himself had slaves. The most ruthless and evil slave owner recorded was actually black. I could care less what color people are, what I care about is people banning the flag of Dixie and people giving the south a bad wrap because people think the civil war was about slavery.

The North understood and forgave the South long ago. But now the idiot liberals and less understanding that those that actually fought against the South.

There were many black soldiers who fought for the South.
The movie "Glory" only showed those from the North...

And as noticed in the vid, the Yell varied as to who was doing it
It was as much a scare tactic as it was comraderie,
each area, and sometimes each family, generally had it's own version...
South Central TN has a distinctive Rebel Yell,
which is still being passed down today from soldier to soldier.

Although, I was taught, "take good, solid cover, away from the platoon a bit, then let 'er rip!
That way you can draw fire/attention while your guys light 'em up!!
Scares the bejeebers out of 'em, and any that survive will remember..."
I'd imagine there were more than a few Germans that could attest to the
effectiveness of the Rebel Yell in WW2

So the Civil War began with a "Yell" and ended with a whisper over 650,000 American graves?
