120th Nationals Cannon Match [Video]

by Mike Kendra on October 18, 2009

The following video was taken at the 120th National Cannon Match at Fort Shenandoah near Winchester, Virginia on October 3rd, 2009. It includes video of Rifles, Smoothbores, and Howitzers firing for score at bulls-eyes and silhouettes. All cannons fire at 200 yards in this competition except the Howitzers that fire at targets 100 yards distant.

This video runs about 3 minutes, and I’ve added the 1812 Overture to the background for your entertainment. I hope you enjoy it!
