Our cannons wheels are used for landscaping, yard art and as decorative pieces outside the house.


Chuck Wallace, with the "South Carolina Company of Historical Re-Enactors",       ("http://www.schr.org ")  was kind enough to provide this picture of a project that they used our stock cannon wheels for.  Below is some information from them.   Pay their site a visit...   Thanks much

"You may use the photo on your web site if you wish.  The barrel is a 3 pounder and the carriage is Revolutionary War.  We will use them in re-enactments and at ceremories at various historic sites."

"We also put on living history days for various elementary schools and student groups."

"We re-enact the 4th South Carolina Regiment here in South Caroline.  We also do Marion's Militia and will use the new gun while re-creating that unit as well.  The new carriage will greatly enhance our rev. war inpression."


"Thanks, Chuck Wallace"
Chuck.
