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…
