U.S.Civil War "James" Cannon & Limber Ammo Cart Combo Kit, 1/16 Scale


The Model 1841 cannon, a lightweight gun used extensively during the Mexican War, was subsequently "pressed" into service again at the outbreak of the Civil War. Re-bored and rifled in the "James" fashion to accept the patent projectiles designed by General Charles T. James, it became a James cannon. The Limber Ammunition Wagon was a simple two-wheeled cart designed to carry an ammunition chest containing gunpowder and shot for the artillery pieces. A team of horses was hitched to the limber and the cannon was hooked on to its rear when the army was on the move.
