Absolutely terrifying and id imagine deafening. to walk into that would require quite the amount of mental fortitude.

Oh and i also found this video of a civil war cannon firing explosive shot at a modern APC. did more damage than i would have expected! although APC are not really armored.

Great videos, those cannon balls whistling through the air are truly frightening.

The second one is definitely the one to watch. I like the bell tone of this bronze barrel firing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k86XhYS8GJI

This seems a little more realistic to me: (Gettysburg, 1993)

The "making of" portion of the DVD said this was the largest artillery barrage on the north American continent since the real thing.
I believe it.
The second video in the OP is chilling listening to the sound of the incoming as well as the outgoing at the second half.

I always thought it would be cool to be able to go back in time with a modern tank with a flame thrower!
