A little history
Developed in France for Emperor Napoleon III in the 1850s, the smoothbore 12-pounder cannon became the most popular gun of the American Civil War. It was light enough to be easily maneuverable and heavy enough to destroy field fortifications almost a mile away. Firing solid shot, spherical case and canister, it was extremely versatile. By mid-1863 nearly half of all field artillery pieces were Napoleons. The Union had more than 1,000 in its arsenal and Confederacy over 600.
