Listed below are different bugle calls used during the Civil War. It is good to get yourself familiar with them when out on the field of battle. The bugle was essential to all military communication until its displacement by today's electronics. The primary bugler was assigned to the headquarters staff, and kept close to the commander at the front. Soldiers were quick to learn the calls of the bugle, and on a routine day at least four, and as many as ten, were made.
