Fort Jackson Carronade1

Custom Fine Art Print on Premium Media - A 32-pounder smoothbore Carronade cannon, mounted on a wooden sled, sits behind its embrasure at Fort James Jackson, near Savannah, Georgia. These Carronade guns were used to fire balls, bolts, screws - any loose parts available - along the flanks of a fortification as a means of disuading attackers from getting too near the fort's walls.
