I have a feeling I’ve posted this before, but this YouTube video seems to have been uploaded recently, and it certainly bears another watch! Here’s what we think the infamous Rebel Yell sounded like.
There are, however, countless descriptions of the yell from both Union and Confederate soldiers. It’s said to be similar to Native American war cries, while also having elements of what was called a “Texas yell.” After research and some tinkering, an authentic reproduction was finally reproduced for the first time. Though there aren’t any Civil War veterans around to verify the sound, historians believe this iteration fo the Confederate yell is accurate.
