Rebel Yell - What did it sound like?

I had an email forwarded to me this morning from two cousins that was absolutely amazing. I am not easily amazed but this did it!

The Museum of the Confederacy was involved with recreating an authentic Rebel Yell. They obtained original recordings of Civil War veterans and amplified the sound to recreate a Confederate charge! I consider myself to be a Southerner but the yell is nothing like I ever expected...nothing like you would hear on the "Dukes of Hazard"! It sounds like imminent death. I would hate to be on the other end of the Confederate charge!

The link below is to the local NPR station, look for the link for the Rebel Yell. I do not know how long the link will work so check it out as soon as possible...
