@ 1100 Cannons, Rifles, & Muskets: TWIH
This week, we travel to Detroit, Michigan for an eye-opening demonstration of the bloodiest weapons of America's bloodiest war--the Civil War. With the guidance and expertise of a premiere battle reenactment group, we fire everything from a musket to a cannon at a series of targets, meticulously showing the damage and asking, "What if these were men?" We demonstrate why these weapons reaped such carnage, and give viewers a rare peak into the horror of an old-fashioned war. TV G
