New tactics of using artillery weapons were developed during the American Civil War. "Flying batteries", first used by Confederate Artillery Major John Pelham, were effective in tricking the enemy into believing a greater artillery force opposed them than was actually present. Families will witness a reenactment of the battle procedure utilizing these cannons.
