1. First Call: When you hear this, you need to dress for battle and fall into formation quickly.
2. There should be no hand-to-hand fighting unless it is prearranged and scripted: If another person insists on attacking, bring your rifle up to port arms and gently cross your rifle against the opposition an act like you are taking a hit.
3. Stay with your regiment: If you feel the effects of heat or exertion and feel like you may get sick, fall out, but make sure somebody knows so you can be found later, or walked bact to camp. If you are injured yell "MEDIC" and make sure someone hears you.
4. Stay in your rank/squad: Wait for orders to make any change. When the first line (those with shorter weapons) takes a knee, the second rank leans forward so that the person's ear is between the second and third band on your weapon.
5. Never try to touch or capture the enemy flag: Only take the flag bearer prisoner. The flag bearer will furl the flag and hold it at a 45 degree angle or less holding it uner the left arm.
6. Don't charge artillery head-on: When the ramrods are crossed over the muzzle, advance well to the right or left. If the rammer is upright on the wheel, this means the gun is loaded ready to fire. Do not fire your weapon after you have crossed the red blocks.
7. Don't touch a horse without the permission of the rider:NEVER discharge a weapon over or at a horse.
8. Never point your rifle or pistol at anyone:ALWAYS point your weapon above their heads. NEVER fire over a person lying on the ground.
9. Never out anything other than black powder in the barrel of your weapon: Do not drop the paper cartridge into the barrel. This really lessons the chance of anyone getting hurt by flying debris.
10. Don't use glue, staples, or paper clips to hold cartridges closesd: This way nothintg hard gets inserted into the barrel and becomes a projectile.
11. While on the field, never use the ramrod to ram cartridges home: Never remove the ramrod from the rifle housing while on the battle field. If the ramrod is mistakenly fired, it becomes an arrow.
12. The cavalry (including dismounts) never uses bayonets: It makes the rifle too long and hard to swing around.
13. Do not take real antique weapons on the battle field: The danger of them exploding and injuring you or someone else is too great.
14. Don't insult the enemy: Communication between opposing troops is not done. There is no talking in ranks to begin with.
15. Take Hits: Casualties, usually run between 20 and 50 percent. Use common sense when making the decision to take a hit, do it safely. Always fall forward.
16. Get prior approval before using makeup to simulatae wounds: People right around you need to know.
17. When down , lie still if you are dead, or if you are just wounded it must look realistic: Don't lean on your elbow and watch the rest of the battle.
18. End of Battle: At the end of the battle, regroup with the company so that weapons can be cleared before going back to camp.
19. Back at Camp: New orders will be issued prior to being dismissed.
