Cannon Firing
Civil War Reenactment
Naperville, Illinois

This civil war era cannon really lets off a boom during the annual Naper Settlement Civil War Days. Since the cannon was not firing a projectile, only about 1/4 the amount of black powder was used, but you could still feel the explosion a few hundred feet away. They don't use too much black powder in reenactments because it would break the windows in the historic settlement.

Hi Tom.
This is a nice action photo, of an Historical reanactment in American History. Good timing on the canon firing.

Thank You.
