Eight Unusual Civil War Weapons

From the History Channel. I'm just listing them. The site has pictures and information. I was aware of most. (*= something I didn't know much about.) 1. Hand Grenades*, 2. Rockets (used by blockaders to signal the arrival of blockade-runners and to celebrate victories), 3. Machine Guns, 4. Landmines (an extensive network at Fort Fisher), 5. Underwater Mines (used extensively by the Confederacy), 6. Calcium Floodlights (I'm just learning about them.), 7. Hot Air Balloons, 8. Winans Steam Gun*. Learning Stuff All the Time. --Old Secesh
