While I am new to this site I have shot some cannons as a Union Cavalry reenact-or. Yes we captured guns and turned them on the Rebels. We where trained in proper artillery safety by the Mich Battery guys.
Yes it is brass. Any idea as to model?It appears to be modeled after a "Spanish 16" Pedero (1788). This mortar fired baskets of stones."
