QUE ESCUADRA DE PELOTUDOS,,,algo mas insignificante que armar un cañon y ver como dispara A USA lo tendrian que fundar de vuelta haci le cambian esa mentalidad por tirar tiros y el olor a polvora.........
Ok everybody go home now
Turn the cannon around, by the time you fire the front line is a half mile behind you....
Fake! Theres no recoil.
Asta que terminen de cargar el cañón el enemigo los mató 10 veces 😂
Zero recoil ^^ fucking joke ^^
It's not a 30 pounder if there isn't a 30 pounder.
Mo Milla... strongman dance.... rhaaaaaak
all that and a lil pop....
И в бою такие понты?
This is not "firing" the weapon. It's nothing but a quarter load with no projectile.

что за клоунада...
Yes. No projectile, so there was no recoil. The actual report was much louder than it sounds in the video.
Thank heavens there was no war!
Not a military charge.
Powder charge..? How sad.
Looks like a City crew😂😂
2min 49sec wasted
How did the Union win the war with those slow-firing cannons?
Hey, you forgot the projectile!!!
that was essentially a blank. Powder only, (can't tell if it was a reduced load) and no projectile. If it was a live round she woulda jumped. That was the whole sticks thing. They were faking rolling it back up to position after it jumped back from a previous shot. Still fun to watch tho. Thanks for sharing.
It takes 3 hours to prepare for God sake
Drummer Hoff fired it off!!
Nancy is the name of a cannon they used to fire off at Kennesaw Mt. Ga. Don't recall if it was US or CSA. Loud as a thunder clap! Can't imagine scores of them banging about and echoing off that granite mount. A true killing field. We matched around it after a spell and took Atlanta. Visible from the top 15 or so miles away. Freekin war!!!
Why do that use a pig tail ? Be for the powder and ball
These cannons are really stupid in their time, today’s, I can fire about 50 rounds in a minute, while they taking 20 minute for one
No they are just doing it very slowly. Normal reload times are much much quicker
Sir, the 17-pounder won’t fit!Put it in sideways
Man that looks so slow to reload
The reinforcement band at the breach looks like a good idea.
The piece never moved an inch. I was hoping for a full service load with projectile. Oh well, still better than a kick in the basket.
Argyle McGoogin its fake. Not an actual demonstration.
I'll bet if they where talking fier thay would (Get the lead out)😑,,,,,,yes I know,cannon balls are made of iron,
What? No Ball,
This is a Parrott Rifle. Not a cannon. Rifles use cylindrical projectiles. Many cannon were bored, sleeved with a rifled cylinder for the advantages. As modern ships motor or steam they don't sail anymore. About time we all caught up. We don't reefer to a Barrett 50cal as a musketoon, nor a PPK as a pepper-box. I would like to see a real cannon fired, a 20 inch Rodman. Rodmans didn't rupture, killing all about and their propellant was superior. .
where are you?
With these big guns, they are so loud you more feel them than hear them. They shake you up inside. I am sure being on the end being shelled was just awful. (Even if you got missed)
Oops. I was thinking of the IX-inch Dahlgren, which I'm using in a novel. The 30-pounder Parrott had a 4.2 inch muzzle, which would be 107 mm.
@Stagecoacher thank you.
The caliber was 9 inches, but if you want that in mm, it is about 229 mm.
I have also gone on elephanta. There I saw 2 cannons on the hill but I did not understand that who built it, that cannons are very big
You can always tell an old artilleryman, but he won't be able to hear it.
Jis fir the dang thun
what are they using 1/30th of a charge? these things were supposed to be loaded with several pounds of gunpowder
The actual report was much louder than you hear in the video. The camera overloaded on a sound that loud.
How they wan the was if they were shooting so slowly? ...Maybe the Alliens helped a little.....
Pretty slow if you ask me. 🐒🤔😂
All it is is a powder shot no round was fired but till nice to watch
Must have some damn BIG parrots in Georgia!😂
@Paul Noel sorry, just saw this, I was a Gunnersmate in the Navy as was my father who retired out, also my great grand father marched with Sherman through Atlanta and Savannah. I was just throwing some humor in there! 😄
Did you look at the Uniforms. The Parrot Guns were USA not CSA. The USA was the first country to really bring in rifled big guns that were cast or machined iron/steel. These civil war guns were so effective that their use with minor modifications mostly breech loading went on well up to World War 2. I was on Corregidor Philippines and saw the big guns there and most of them were Civil War type. www.corregidorisland.com/guns.html . These ancient design guns stopped General Homma for 5 months and cost him more than 100,000 soldiers. The Union Army (USA) lined up cannon at what is now Chickamauga dam all the way to the Chickamauga battlefield 23 miles away almost wheel to wheel. Today the road is called Gun Barrel Road for this. These cannons later surrounded Atlanta Georgia and forced the withdrawal of CSA forces and they burned the town as they left. Similar forces surrounded Richmond and forced Lee to Appomattox. I never used to understand that Appomattox event then I learned that Sherman had wheeled north after taking Savanna Georgia and cut a swath through the Carolinas into Virginia. Lee withdrew from Richmond and headed for the southern end of the Shenandoah only to find General Sherman in his face and General Grant at his heels. He was trapped! It would have been a massacre if they had fought. The game was over.
If it takes them that long to fire one round the damn war will be over.
Back then the solider's were proficient and professional to the actor's..
"What do you mean we don't have any shells? I thought YOU were supposed to bring them!"
I Heard it Called The" Art of Tillery "Them Dam Yankees make it look moronic . let's see them get off 3 Shells a minute.
The war would be over by then. Ha
There go Esau playing with his toys lol
I guess the audience had to be told when to clap.
By the time they reload it the battle would be over.
It was a drill to demonstrate the actions in loading and firing a canon not an action replay of a battle scene. I have been part of a gun crew with a smaller 12 lb cannon
No recoil, no projectile , no fun ! 13 bravo
No 100lb shells, no fuses, no charge 8 red bag, no CHECK FIRE, fall to the rear of the gun!!, no fun!! 13 ECHO
Damm these dudes go No Skills..
