Artillery Through the Ages is a short illustrated history of cannon, emphasizing types used in America.

For that reason these pages are written; people are curious about the fascinating weapon that so prodigiously and powerfully lengthened the warrior’s arm. And theirs is a justifiable curiosity, because the gunner and his “art” played a significant role in our history.
