The musket was the best tool for warfare during the 18th century and into the 19th century. A member of Colonial Williamsburg’s Military Programs staff will demonstrate the loading and firing of the musket using a loading procedure from an 18th-century military manual that was common for the period. Experience the sounds and smells a soldier experienced during the Revolution.
