"In honor of the July 4th holiday, Shiloh National Military Park will present Civil War cannon firing demonstrations on Saturday, July 6," announced superintendent John Bundy. The scheduled firing demonstrations will be presented by the Shiloh cannon crew, firing a 6-pounder gun, across the street from the park visitor center.
The cannon firing demonstrations will take place at 11:00 am, 1:30 pm, and 3:00 pm on Saturday only. Each program will last approximately 30-minutes, and interpret the weapons, projectiles, and procedures Civil War artillery crews used during the war.
