FOR REENACTMENT?

The carbines could be more precise than the pistols and gave a longer effective reach. However, the sequence of loading and firing was complex, so during the training recruits were required to repeat these movements until they could be performed instinctively amidst the tension and confusion of combat. In theory, a well-trained soldier could shoot five times per minute, but in normal combat it was a rate of two or three shots per minute or less if the confrontation lasted.

The trajectory of the bullet was imprecise and during the combat it was impossible to aim well. The only way to ensure certain efficiency was by grouping a high density of weapons on a reduced front, firing in as close as possible to the lowest possible distance. Even so, on many occasions, the fighters after shooting were forced to use the bayonet.

Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821), Emperor of France between 1804 and 1815, consolidated and instituted many of the reforms of the French Revolution. He is considered one of the greatest military geniuses in history and conqueror of the greater part of Europe. He commanded campaigns very successful warfare, although with certain similar defeats. His aggressive conquest wars became the largest military operations known until that moment in Europe, involving a number of soldiers never seen in the armies of that time.
