Miniature Light 12-Pounder Gun, Model 1857 “Napoleon” Cannon


Miniature replica of a 12-Pounder Light Gun known as the “Napoleon Cannon”. There were only a few dozen in existence in the US when the Civil War began in 1861, but by the time of the battle of Gettysburg in 1863, Napoleons had become the most popular smoothbore cannon for both sides. The Napoleon gun was so widely used because it was as effective as its predecessors but much lighter and more mobile. Great for dioramas, battlefields, and a desk/bookshelf accessory!
