Product Description

CIVIL WAR 3 POUNDER CANNONBALL, PEA RIDGE, ARKANSAS
THIS IS AN 3+ POUNDER CANNONBALL (WEIGHED ON MY BATHROOM SCALES). IT IS ABOUT 8.50" AROUND THE OUTER PERIMETER AND 3.00" IN DIAMETER. IT WAS FOUND ON WHAT WAS AT THE TIME PRIVATE LAND NEAR PEA RIDGE, ONE OF THE BATTLE GROUNDS IN NW ARKANSAS. THIS CANNONBALL HAS LOTS OF PITTING AND PATINA. IT HAS TWO FLAT PLACES ON ONE SIDE WHERE IT HIT SOMETHING VERY SOLID WHEN FIRED.

THIS SOLID SHOT IS CALLED THE CLASSIC CANNONBALL. THIS CAST-IRON ;CANNONBALL TYPE WAS STILL IN COMMON USE DURING THE CIVIL WAR. THEY WERE USEFUL FOR PUNCHING HOLES IN WOODEN SHIPS AND BATTLEMENTS. SINCE THEY TENDED TO BOUNCE ACROSS THE GROUND, SKILLFUL GUNNERS USED THEM TO BREAK UP MASSED TROOP FORMATIONS.

YOU WILL RECEIVE INFORMATION WITH THIS CANNONBALL OF BOTH THE FAMOUS CIVIL WAR BATTLES IN NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.

YOUR COMPLETE SATISFACTION IS GUARANTEED BY ME.
