Guest blogging over at Osprey Publishing

I recently did a guest post over at Osprey Publishing's blog about some medieval cannon I saw at a Spanish castle. Here's a closeup of one of them. While it looks crude, it was certainly better than at least one Confederate cannon used in Missouri. At the Battle of Athens on 5 August 1861, the Confederates had a cannon made of a hollowed out log. I doubt the Union troops were surprised when it blew up the first time the rebels tried to fire it! Check out my writing blog for another image that didn't make it into the guest post. I took a lot of photos at this place!
