Give ‘em Another Round Confederate Artillery with 6 Pound Howitzer
The M1841 6-pound field gun was a smoothbore muzzle-loading cannon that was adopted by the United States Army in 1841 and used from the Mexican-American War to the American Civil War. By the early 1800s guns were produced in one of two metals, iron or bronze. Bronze guns, if fired too rapidly, would overheat and warp. Iron cannons did not warp from overheating but cast iron was more brittle and heavier than bronze. From 1820 to 1840, American cannon foundries switched from cold blast to hot blast to cast their guns for reasons of economy and convenience; this led to more brittle cast iron guns.
