The Salem Zouave's Bayonet Drill

Above is a picture from the website of the Salem, MA Zouaves. There are not a lot of them, but they make up for their numbers by their dedication to depicting the French Zouave Bayonet Drill.

Since I will never be able to see Elmer Ellsworth's Chicago Zouaves, I was looking on the Internet for just such an exhibition as these fine gentlemen have put together. Below are two links to videos of the drill, and one to their website.
