Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821), Emperor of France between 1804 and 1815.

Flintlock weapons required the manual recharge of their ammunition after each shot. The ammunition, which was introduced through the mouth of the barrel, consisted of gunpowder, projectile and paper wad, which served as a cap to keep the the gunpowder and bullit compressed inside the barrel. 

The rifles could be more precise than the pistols and gave a longer effective reach. However, the sequence of loading and firing was complex, so during the training recruits were required to repeat these movements until they could be performed instinctively amidst the tension and confusion of combat. 

In theory, a well trained soldier could shoot five times per minute, but in stresfull combat it was a rate of two or three shots per minute or less if the confrontation lasted.  The trajectory of the bullet was imprecise and during the combat it was difficult to aim well. 

The only way to ensure certain efficiency was by grouping a high density of rifles on a reduced front, firing in as close as possible to the lowest possible distance.  Even so, on many occasions, the fighters after shooting were forced to use their bayonet.
