The Infamous Rebel Yell

I’ve been reading about the American Civil War since junior high school, and have always wondered what the fabled “rebel yell” sounded like. After listening to a dozen or so videos on the web, I think this one gives the best approximation. Sounds to me like a very large pack of angry dogs….

  1. You’re correct about the yell sounding like dogs. My dog actually started growling when I played the audio. I’m sure it was a frightening sound on the battlefield. The smoke and fog of war definitely made the Yell even more hellish.
