Although these easily-deployed 18th century weapons may seem crude today, at the time they were expensive, cutting-edge technology. Centuries of refinements had been made to artillery by the time of the Revolution and gun crews were made up of well-trained, resolute and skilled men who were expected to give unflinching support on the battlefield and send shot, shell and grapeshot tearing through the enemy’s lines hundreds of yards away. You can be part of the action and honor the legacy!
