When you face a fortified city or structure, it is time to roll about the big guns. In the American Civil War, cannons were the common artillery of the day, and this Dahlgren Civil War Mini Cannon Replica recreates their appearance. Historically, cannons like this one were stolen back and forth between the Union and Confederacy.
This impressive miniature features a brass tone metal cannon barrel set on a wooden base. The plastic wheels actually turn with metal rims, so this miniature can roll about just like an old cannon would. On the side of the cannon, there is a small label that reads Dahlgren 1861. There are other historical details such as a rope bundle on top of the base.
The small size makes it a great collectible, as well as a fun display piece to have on a desk or shelf. Plus, leaving the replica on your desk ensures that you always have the option of calling in the artillery to help with some task!
