Civil War Cannon Reproduction

by Stephanie Suesan Smith, Ph.D. on May 12, 2011

This was in the Clark Gardens.  Apparently, when the Civil War was raging and Sherman was burning everything he could, people gathered cuttings and saplings from important trees in the South and fled West with them.    Mr. Clark has gathered cuttings or saplings from as many of those as he can find, certified as genuine, and he has a reproduction cannon in his Civil War grove.

Imagine living when the Civil War happened… seeing how they used cannons made out of wood, with pallets of sand or hiding behind trees during war makes me have more respect for veterans. This photo speaks so many words don’t you think?

The men fighting in the Civil War had it rough. The Confederates were poorly equiped and starving during most of the war. The Union soldiers were a little better off, but nobody lived well. In fact, most of them had short, brutal lives and died during or shortly after the war. I feel sorry for them, fighting in a war they didn’t want.

The picture just takes me back to history, not good times but almost essential to our growth as a country. The good thing is, we came out a better Nation, at least now we are united.
