12 Pounder and Cannister Shot!
This is a fascinating look at smoothbore artillery used during the Civil War. If you have been to a re-enactment with artillery you have been cheated just a bit. The brass cannons firing powder only make a nice boom, but you are missing something. The brass tubes ring like a bell when a projectile goes rattling down the bore. You get to hear plenty of it in this video, so enjoy this rare treat.
