N-B Video: Boy scouts learn to fight like the pioneers

A boy scout aims a wooden model based on a Revolutionary War musket at the KOA Campground Saturday, when he and about 100 other scouts representing 10 troops from Wells, Adams, Jay and Huntington counties spent about eight hours during the scouts’ annual Klondike Derby camping outing. While braving the cold and snow, scouts also earned their American Heritage Badge, learning about the Constitution, military formation and how to load a musket, though the scouts used sand instead of gun powder.
