This was a firing of cannister from a civil war cannon. The same type was used in the American Revlutionary War. I cannot imagine standing in battle formation facing this.

This remarkable picture is a grape shot caught in mid-air. You can clearly see the all eleven shot in flight and the can, and parts of the sabot. The credit goes to our photographer Randy Seals.
