A00419 - Wood sabot for 32pdr cannon ball from Pete George collection

Item Number: F00419

Item Title: Wood sabot for 32pdr cannon ball from Pete George collection

Price: $75

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS


Size: 32pdr

Sabot: Wood



Location Recovered: Castle Pinckney, SC

Description:A big chunk of wood sabot for a 32pdr spherical shell / cannon ball. I got this a couple years ago from Pete George, co-author of the "Field Artillery Projectiles of the American Civil War." He told me that the late Greg Craven received permission to dig a mound at Castle Pinckney in Charleston Harbor and recovered numerous mortar balls on their sabots inside.

Wood is hard and has a nice curvature to hold the cannon ball. Unfortunately some of the wood is missing, but what remains is well preserved.
