The mountain howitzer is a nice cannon. Small and lightweight. We were in some reinactments with units that fielded them,
I think the carriage on a large gun is the hard part. The iron fittings are somewhat intricate and getting the wheels correct is time consuming. A 12 pounder Napoleon weighs over 1,000 lbs and the wheels must be right in order to move them.

Good video. Thanks, Randy. As to Biden’s often repeated remark that you couldn’t buy a cannon, many cannons in Colonial times were privately owned and cannons can still be purchased today. In fact, the cannon my Civil War reinactment unit used was privately owned.



Privately owned. Oh I just can not go there. So I guess you weren’t the original owner. grin wink

I guess your memory must be failing. As a member of the Union Army Balloon Corps, you knew the original owner.

I need to get bigger shows or a smaller mouth so my feet won’t fit in there any more. wink

Randy, we all care for you anyway. Go snuggle up with your llama and gold bars and you’ll feel better soon.

Thank you Ray. The Llama and I are both happy but I can only access Fort Kno er I mean my little gold vault every other day (time lock) so I will have to wait until tomorrow. Good thing I guess, I ran out of wax. Guess I better buy another 10 gallons. wink
