Re: Efficient long range musketry

With the Arcangues example the infantry have the benefit of being able to rest their muskets on walls or windowsills. This would be an advantage both in consistency of firing and fatigue of those firing.

It would be useful to note the context of any examples and perhaps go looking for examples from New Orleans, The Alamo (not Napoleonic I grant but similar enough), the edge of built up areas and fortresses.
