Award-winning author and Civil War artillery expert William Speir has spent nearly 20 years teaching artillery safety to reenactors across the United States. His Artillery Manuals have been used by the artillery schools of the Loyal Train of Artillery Chapter of the United States Field Artillery Association and the Royal Hutt River Military College. This Muzzle-Loading Artillery textbook was written to help Artillery Reenactors, Living Historians, Ceremonial Artillerists, and anyone interested in Muzzle-Loading Artillery, to operate Muzzle-Loading Artillery safely and accurately. Included in this textbook is information regarding nomenclature, ordnance, commands, deployment, personnel, safety, and drills for Muzzle-Loading Artillery used by the American military between 1812 and 1865. The emphasis is on Field Artillery (guns and howitzers), but the drills for Mortars, Naval Artillery, and Heavy Artillery are also included.
