Confederate Drummer in Frock Coat

The sound of the drums moved troops into place, therefore each drummer was required to learn dozens of rudiments and drum calls. Each call would tell the soldiers that they were required to perform a specific task or assemble into a precise formation. The responsibility of the drummer put them in the forefront of any action until the firing lines were established, after which they generally moved to the rear. However, they could be called upon during the fighting to evacuate the wounded. Drums were often decorated with the unit’s insignia, coats of arms, or national symbols. But this soldier’s drum is far more pragmatic lacking any such ostentatious display.
