Civil War Cannon Shot

Thought I'd share this video that I took last weekend. This thing was pretty freaking loud. Charge was 1/3lb of powder.

We were at Vicksburg Mississippi at the battlefield site and happened to catch them doing this with a pretty big cannon.
You are right that was loud as ! Even with my fingers in my ears it made me jump.

Are you sure this was a Civil War reenactment? The clothes the reenacters have on look like they were from the Texas War of Independence.

It wasn't a Civil War reenactment. This was taken at 'Pioneer Day' where they wear period clothing and teach about the early pioneers. Actually I'm not certain if it was a Civil War cannon. Could be Rev. war. Either way it was cool.
