Both U.S. and Mexican Infantry soldiers drilled with muskets. Constant drilling made them familiar their weapons and prepared them for battle. A well-trained soldier could fire three shots in one minute. Students will use non-firing wooden prop muskets to drill and learn the steps to load and fire a flintlock musket. Students will learn how a real flintlock works and some of the problems you can encounter with a flintlock musket. The musket drill program can accommodate up to 30 students. Program lasts approximately 15 minutes.
