Civil War cannon fire

Ever wonder what it was like to be on the receiving end of a Civil War cannon?  Sure you have.   I fired 105mm artillery during my service time but being on the beginning end compared to being on the finish end are two different things.  Imagine walking towards batteries of these guns firing at you.
  I can't imagine it at all.  The bravery of those soldiers is simply unimaginable.

If you watch the video, note the puff of white smoke, then the sound of the gun firing, then the whizz of the cannon ball.

Go to full screen and turn up the sound.  It send shivers down my back.
