  Although weapons like the cannon's shown in the clip were used in smaller numbers, they were capable of doing more damage than muskets. A very effective antipersonnel weapon, the cannon could fire various types of shot. Although the archetypical round shot or the cannon "ball" was often fired, what was most effective against an oncoming infantry force was known as a "canister" shot. As the name suggests, it was a container or a canister packed full of musket balls. When fired, the balls are sent out in a horrific cone of lead, much like a giant shotgun. Depending on the size of the cannon, each canister could contain from 30-40 musket balls devastating everything in its path.
