Light Artillery Limber
Typically to move a gun, a 6-horse team was harnessed in pairs to a wood and iron limber resting on two wheels. The frame of the limber held a wooden ammunition chest containing a number rounds and the necessary tools to prepare and fire the ammunition. Once a gun was unhitched and positioned for firing, the limber and horses were normally positioned approximately six yards behind the gun depending on the terrain. A fully loaded ammunition chest for the M1857 light 12-Pound Napoleon carried 32 rounds and weighed around 650 pounds. In addition to the normal ammunition in the limber chest, around five rounds of anti-personal canister were stored for emergency use should enemy infantry get too close.
