THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR COLLECTION
1777, 1776 & 1775 FIELD CANNONS
Field Cannons of the Revolutionary War, Circa 1740 to 1800
The three sizes of cannon we manufacture are models of the mobile "field cannon" used in Colonia America during the French and Indian War and the American Revolution. However, muzzle-loading cannon of this general type were in use over a span of almost 700 years, stretching long before and after this era. As show on the illustration, the cannon on double-trailed and the barrels, or tubes, have reinforced rings typical of cannon of this period. Our models are detailed to the point where each has a tiny ignition vent, or "touch hole," at the breech end. The barrels, finished in burnished brass, move freely in thier carraiges, permitting them to be raised or lowered. The cast metal wheels rotate freely. Each is individually boxed.
