This adorable Coehorn Mortar also adorns the Fascine Artillery Battery. It fires a 4½-inch exploding shell at a 45° angle.

This sweet wee mortarlet sits in its own specially-made position: Artillery of this era were usually on wheels, which would allow them to roll backwards with a shot's recoil. This little mortar was made to be man-portable, and if just placed on the ground and fired, would dig iself into the ground with each shot. If its handlers weren't fortunate enough to be firing from atop a giant rock, a position such as this would be necessary.
