At the onset of the Civil War, the artillery of the Confederacy was dependent on what was taken from southern Federal arsenals, what was in the possession of the Southern Militia units and after early successes in battle on captured Union Artillery.

Little ammunition had been made in the South for many years, but the Confederacy quickly built up mills and arsenals. One of the world’s finest at Augusta, Georgia went into production in April 1862. Other mills were at Nashville and Manchester, Tennessee; New Orleans, Louisiana; Marshall, Texas; and Petersburg, Virginia.

This collector’s item depicts the Napoleon with a smooth sided bronze barrel, the feature of Confederate manufacture.
