John Jenkins Designs BCHGUN-01 5th July 1814, 6lb Cannon

The clash of infantry against infantry was the most important aspect of Napoleonic battles.

The technological advances of the period had made the artillery the most powerful arm in battle.

Guns were designated by the weight of the round shot they fired. The most common and useful gun in the War of 1812 was the 6 pounder. The 6 pound round shot had a fearsome effect. At 600-700 yards under optimum conditions it could cut through nineteen men or seven feet of earth.
