The rate of fire on that ain’t very impressive. Does the video show a simulation of combat operations???
Well, sort of a bunch of amateurs demonstrating their idea of how it goes. In real combat the gun crew would have been really hustling. But the audience loved it on this day. They liked the loud BOOM! Much louder than sounds in the video. Gave the gun crew a good round of applause.
Me: I bet that guy thinks he's so cool not covering his earsAlso Me: He's deaf.

Dang, my smoke pole is louder than that, looks like it's got a bigger wallop too? If you're going to go to all that trouble, dress up & act the part, at least get all the goodie you can out of it! Max load that puppy, let the BIG STICK GO BOOOOOOM, make Savannah think a nuke hit Tybee Island!
@Stagecoacher I thought it should have been much louder, I bet it was in person. Didn't know if it was loaded light for Insurance purposes? But it sure didn't do justice to artillery! The Booms I remember from my days in the Army, made that seem like a cap gun? Wasn't trying to jerk your chain, just thought the croud should get a GOOD show and a true example of what it was like. Glad it was and Thanks for sharing, I did enjoy your video!
The actual report was MUCH louder than it sounds in my video. My camera gagged on a noise that loud.
эт надо столько дрочились...
Not a practical cannon to use back in the day, because it needed a large crew to operate it. But it was one of the most feared cannons do to the barrel being riffled, which made it extremely accurate.
Это просто пиздец клоуны...
That was loud
Surely the soldiers in the civil war did not do all this "color guard" type of ceremony to fire the fucking cannon.
I wanna see a 42 Pound ship cannon
Ahhhh! Where’s the cannon ball?Whats the fun in that?I wanted to see it demolish something. What a tees
At that speed in an actual battle they would’ve been dead before they’ve loaded the gunpowder in
What was the point!👎👎👎
Take that you REBEL BASTARDS....
Is this actual Civil War footage because I just spent like 155 years waiting for them to load it.
And they didn't even roll in a cannon ball. Geesh.
I think it takes about that long to become declassified info. Then they can release it to the public. I wonder what version of the apple iPhone union troops used back then and was it compatible with telegraph?
Fire a solid spherical round instead of a blank
Very disappointing to watch these guys take 3 years to load a cannon only to fire a blank.
A 240p cannon for a 640p war. Nowadays the cannons are loaded with the building behind them and it shoots the building 20 miles.
Interesting but fake
A disappointing pop
Guess I’ve watched too many action packed Hollywood films
The actual report was much louder than it sounds on the video. I was pleased that I didn't flinch when the gun went off. The audience gasped and applauded. Much louder than the howitzer they had fired before the 30-pounder.
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
Fake! Theres no recoil.
Asta que terminen de cargar el cañón el enemigo los mató 10 veces 😂
Si hermano lo malo es que el enemigo tenía la misma desventaja o peor ni siquiera tenían armas hoy opinamos diferente porque el dinero nos representa muchas fantasías
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....
I've been to medieval reenactment battles where they used a cannon almost the size of this one, and some medieval hand-cannons and personal firearms, and I was inside, 200 metres away from the action, and even the hand cannons made me think lightning had struck fucking INSIDE the house was in (and I've actually had lightning strike right outside my bedroom window, so I know how loud that is). This made me wander out towards the action, and when I got 100 metres away, with a large hill shielding me from the battle and the noises, I heard the most uncomfortably and earth shatteringly loud noises I've ever heard. I felt it vibrate in my lungs (which is not a pleasant experience), and it made me shield my ears. I got on the ridge and saw that the main cannon was firing, and the hand cannons fired in between, and made the sound I'd heard inside the house. This noise in this video sounds pretty much exactly like that of the main cannon I heard, and I can imagine how loud it must have been to be there. It probably was profoundly uncomfortable for everyone watching if they didn't shield their ears.
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?
Cause the British were gay lol
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.
Thats why the parrot gun was revolutionary
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)
