I am a fervent supporter of the mission of the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond and its President and CEO Waite Rawls. The museum has had to deal with some difficult financial challenges over the past few years as well as defending its reputation in a city that has found it difficult to come to terms with its Confederate past. Through all of this Mr. Rawls has done an excellent job of maintaining the museum as an educational and research institution. In this video Mr. Rawls discusses the research that went into trying to uncover what the famous Rebel Yell sounded like. Click here for Part 2 as well as the rest of the MOC’s videos on YouTube. Enjoy.
