At the beginning of the War between the States, the cannon of both armies were of the smoothbore type, firing round ball-like projectiles of alloy.  Though this cannon had a relatively short range (compared to the 'rifled Parrot, for example), it was used most effectively throughout the War in broken, heavily wooded terrain on which most of the fighting took place.

1865 'Parrot' 20-Pounder Rifle

The 'rifled' cannon, marking an improvement over the age-old smoothbore (which it gradually replaced), is one having a sprialed groove cut into the length of its bore.  Thus, a pointed, enlongated projectile could be fired more accurately and for a much greater distance.  Size: 7 1/2 inches long and 4 7/16 inches wide. Weight is 2 pounds.
