Did You Know?

Untouched, protected earthworks at Cheatham Hill.

The Napoleon 12-pound smoothbore cannon was probably the most effective cannon used in the Civil War. Named after Emperor Napolean III of France, it was used extensively by both the Union and Confederate forces. Soldiers liked its reliability and its sturdiness.
