This site is a collaboration between the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission and the Pennsylvania Heritage Society to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. This particular part of the site is an interactive that shows reenactments of twenty different infantry commands as well as a demonstration of how the artillery loaded and fired cannons. The process is shown in its entirety and also position by position to show the jobs individuals did to prepare the cannon for firing. See the uniforms of a captain and a sergeant and examine each part of the uniform to see its significance. An interesting step back in time.
