I might have one.  In fact I probably do.  I'll look when I get a chance.  They are very rare and expensive!  ::)

RelicRunner shared this with me and I thought it funny.  Hope you enjoy it too.  Some of  you may even be able to relate to it.

Artillery / Re: Confederate Fortifications at Petersburg

Well, it would've helped if I had not miss-labelled it.  This was actually in the Confederate fortifications at Yorktown.  I think it is a 32pdr.  Interestingly, here is another view of the same destroyed cannon but with different things around it.  My guess is this is later as the vroken tube parts seem to have been hauled away.  So, this was clearly a centerpiece attraction and a lot of staging was taking place.

I vote with Mike on this one.  I've got one in my collection recovered in the Trans-Mississippi region.  I've always assumed it to be a canister ball, and I have reason to believe it was made at Marshall, TX

I'm interested in acquiring a James Canister (either whole or just the base).

Fortunately, this one was a shell and everytime that I look at it my back hurts.
