7' Brook Cannon On A Center Pintle Barbette Carriage
The model shown here was built from my #7 plan set.
Brook cannons were among the largest cannons produced by the Confederacy during the Civil War. They were built by Tredegar Foundary, located in Richmond, Virginia and by the Naval Ordnance Works in Selma, Alabama. My model 7" Brook cannon is based on No. S-89, the 89th Brook, built by the Selma facility. The full scale version of this cannon is located in Ft. Morgan, Alabama.
