"A battery of artillery is worth a thousand muskets." - Gen. William T. Sherman
Field cannon were often pulled into place by a team of horses, the number of horses depending upon the size and weight of the cannon. After the cannon was unlimbered, the horses and caissons were moved back to the relative safety of the rear or perhaps other nearby safe spot. The cannon’s crew would then align the aim and trajectory by hand, load and fire. A competent crew might fire its cannon twice a minute, but under the heat of battle and with the adrenaline pumping, four canister shots a minute were known to occur. Depending on the particular powder charge amount and ammunition used, when the cannon fired, it would recoil from a few feet up to maybe a dozen yards. The gun crew would swab and load the cannon as it was rolled back into place by hand.
