Confederate armies struck fear among Union ranks with the infamous Rebel Yell. The Rebel Yell was a distinctive sound made by Confederate soldiers during the heat of battle. Letters written by Wilmington native and soldier Thomas Wood described the Rebel Yell as a noise that could not be duplicated by Yankee soldiers. Kentuckian Kellar Anderson discussed in The Confederate Veteran on what occasions the Rebel Yell was given and how it could never be duplicated beyond the heat of battle. An accurate version of the Rebel Yell can no longer be heard.
