The musket changed how wars were fought around the world. It was an improvement in the quality of weaponry available at the time and had better accuracy. Typically, the soldiers would line up into different formations. Each formation would take a turn firing, and then would spend at least 20 seconds reloading the weapon. While they were reloading, another formation would be firing, so it was a constant attack and more likely to hit the targets. The musket was a useful weapon until the mid to late 1800s, when the rifle replaced it.
