Here is another VIDEO
in which Confederate veterans shout the Rebel Yell both in unison and individually. Not at all what we think of as the Rebel Yell.

Thanks, that was great. Sometimes it sounded just about like the stereotypical Indian war whoop.
That was awesome! Thank you! You know, one of my great-great-great?-grandfathers fought for the Confederacy and died in the war. Another one of my great-great-great-grandfathers fought for the Union. I guess that was common in Kentucky.
I would expect the tone and vigor of the yell to be lacking when done by very old men.

The dogs are still agitated and have their ears pinned after that LOL
