Canister fire at the Battle of Shiloh

In 2012 my son and I made a 600 mile trip to a reenactment in Tennessee – the Battle of Shiloh.  We took lots of photos and video.  At one point we got some of the Federal and Confederate reenactor troops  to work with us to film a canister fire sequence.  They were kind enough to oblige, even after a long day on their feet.

We quickly lined up two Federal Artillery pieces and a group of enthusiastic Confederate infantry.  Cameras were set up. Then… ACTION!

A big “Thank You” goes out to those who helped…
