Rifled cannon first became commonly used in the Civil War. The iron Parrott rifle was developed in the 1850's and patented in 1861 by Robert P. Parrott who was supervisor of the West Point Foundry. It was a distinctive looking design with a cast iron tube shrunk around the breech. The three inch Parrott Rifle had a range of 1900 yards and was in common use by both sides.
Confederate Gun crews were dressed in a combination of regulation gray and butternut. Articles of civilian clothing were common as were broad brimmed felt hats.
