7th CAVALRY ANTIQUED BRASS BUGLENobleWares Image of 7th Cavalry Antiqued Brass Bugle 16-525 16-525
Bugle calls told troops when to go to bed, when to wake up, when to eat, when to attack and when to retreat. There were stable calls, water calls, drill calls, sick calls and church calls on Sunday.
This bugle may well be similar to the one that signaled 7th Cavalry troops immediately after the American Civil War or at the Battle of Little Big Horn. This 7th Cavalry Civil War Bugle is constructed of brass and features and antique brass and copper finish. It measures approximately 12 inches in length and weighs about a pound. The bugle is functional but there will be no guarantees of sweet musicality nor gracious appreciation from your troups all snug in their bunks at the sound of reveille.

The battlefields of the Civil War or the American Indian Wars could quickly become a very confused place. With cannon and muskets roaring it was very difficult to hear commands. It was at times like these that the presence of a unit bugler could mean the difference between order and absolute chaos for a commander. Each infantryman was trained to not only perform to verbal commands but those of the bugle. In the thick of battle the sound of the bugle could often be a soldiers only comfort in an otherwise frightening storm.
Fun Fact: "In the winter, one of the favorite tricks that the soldiers would play on the bugler was to put water in his bugle at night and let it freeze. The next morning the bugler would be unable to blow reveille until he thawed out his bugle."
