Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a nice Civil War artillery piece! It is an excavated 6# solid shot cannonball. These went in the smooth bore Civil War cannon with a bore diameter of 3.67 inches. This one is in nice shape as you can see. There are a couple of spots where the iron has some holes from the casting process. These are interesting because they are definitely Confederate because they would have never made it out of a Northern arsenal with these imperfections. But the Confederates needed them in the field desperately. These 6# cannon were a mainstay for the Confederate artillery here at Shiloh. Since the area was heavily wooded these smoothbore cannon were a very effective weapon for the close combat of the battle here. We don't know where this one was found but many of these were used here at Shiloh. It will make a nice addition to your artillery collection.
