The whole subject is very interesting. It is something I've thought about getting into. For example why did they use iron balls instead of lead. How did they keep the ball in the cannon, I don't think they patched the bball. Canisters and sabots- all sorts of stuff. The fuse- that was more 1700's. By the Civil War they had a pull string and sort of a match deal. I've looked around but never found a book on the subject.
