Cannoneering : The Civil War Podcast

Cannoneering

Neat video purporting to be a science experiment on determining the position of artillery on preserved battlefields, but there’s less science on display than yeehawing reenactors and buffs getting to shoot live ammunition from a Napoleon cannon.

Seeing the grapeshot’s range and scatter disquieting. I am amazed anew at the bravery of the men who marched willingly into the face of that threat. ¬†Hearing that peculiar jangling noise as you marched within range must have been terrifying.
