Artillery: Silent Cannons

We looked through the ECW archives for some artillery articles and found this photography collection shared by Sarah Kay Bierle in 2017. It seemed like the right post for a Sunday morning.

Check out the photos of silent cannons on battlefields and have a quiet a weekend morning.

  1. Nice photos. One might take some issue with how much destruction was actually inflicted by field artillery. The reputation probably comes from the grisly accounts of canister. But the actual statistics likely would not meet the descriptions. (Easy for me to say since I wasn’t one of the guys who was actually encountering this stuff at 50 yards.)
