Re: Native Americans fired this cannon *PIC*

Here’s the only visual representation I’ve ever seen of a militia 3-pounder gun carriage and limber. I suspect contemporary US 3-pounders were identical.

From article “COLLECTION OF ALFRED R. WAUD ARTILLERY SKETCHES, Artillery sketches by wartime artist Alfred Waud.” By Meg Groeling“ In “The Artilleryman,” Spring 2018 issue.
