About the M1857 Napoleon Gun – Civil War Field Gun:
Highly reliable and effective at all ranges, the Model 1857 “Napoleon” was the primary artillery field gun of both the Confederate and Union armies during the American Civil War. Capable of firing several ammunition types, including a 12-pound projectile, effectively to about 2,000 yards, the gun weighed approximately 2 tons (1,626 kg) and required a crew of seven to operate. A well-trained crew could fire up to four rounds per minute, making a battery of M1857 guns a devastating force against infantry or cavalry.
