Confederate Infantry Drummer Marching
A civil war Fife and Drum Corps would include a Drum Major, Fifers, and Drummers playing both the snare drum and bass drum. Normally attached to a regiment, the size of the Fife and Drum Corps would range from as little as 7 or 8 to as large as 20 men. The responsibility of the Fife and Drum Corps was to perform music in camp, on the march, and in battle--as well as help move injured to field hospitals immediately following the engagement. This Confederate drummer plays a repurposed circa War of 1812 Eagle Pattern snare drum made of pliable woods nailed together, with calfskin or sheepskin stretched over each end and held in place with hoops and tension rope. The instrument was loud and was intended to be heard over the roar of battle.
