Addendum – Col Fedorov was struck down during the fighting at “Little Inkerman” just before the Russian withdrawal began. Thus it may not have been his orders that commenced the retreat, but perhaps rather a more organic evolution caused by the British artillery and loss of the Russian Commander. Thanks to Patrick Mercer for the discussion of this interesting sequence of events.
Here we examine contemporary Infantry tactics, conduct a review of the ground and cover the important preliminary action of “Little Inkerman”.

Hi all, welcome to Britishmuzzleloaders… Don’t let the name deceive you!
This is an Historical Shooting Channel that features British and Empire Military Arms from the Victorian era (plus or minus, that is). The Baker Rifle, the Enfield, the Snider, the Martini Henry, the Lee-Metford and Lee Enfield. Eventually there will be the a Brown Bess too.
Although the Channel was stared with a focus on the Enfield Rifle-Musket (hence the name), it has grown in scope and I hope that it might be your source for all aspects of using and shooting these fine old firearms in a military context.
Thanks all for your comments and questions. I look forward to hearing from you.
