Model 1812 French Bugle

This is a French military bugle made in 1812. This is a great example of a bugle. During the Civil War soldiers in all areas of the army would learn different orders from the sounds that were made by the bugler. The battle of Monterey Pass was no different. From our relic collection and from relics sold on the internet, the bugle was used extensively during the battle. This would help to guide soldiers forward or backward and to charge.
