1861 Hardee Confederate Rifle & Light Infantry Tactic Battle Maps Civil War 2v. William Hardee's Light Infantry Tactics was commissioned by Secretary of War Jefferson Davis and modernized American infantry drills, allowing for nimbler, faster-paced battle movements. In 1855, Hardee's Rifle and Light Infantry Tactics became the standard instructional manual for the U. Though Hardee was a Confederate general, both Confederate and Union armies used Hardee's manual during the Civil War.
Hardee's work assumed that troops would be armed with the model 1841 "Mississippi" rifle, a two-band weapon that had achieved popularity during the war with Mexico. He revised his work for the popular three band rifled percussion musket, which became the standard shoulder arm of the American Civil War.
This revision was published in 1861, and again in an edition for North Carolina Troops, in 1862.
