We have dedicated people that are solid leaders and take care of the administrative duties and coordination. On the field those who are able and willing get a chance to shine and take the lead over a section / platoon / company or higher.

    [Before the 6th August 1862:
    1x 10 pdr. Parrot
    2x Boat Howitzer]

    August 6th.- Our Parrot gun was ordered to the south side of the James river about a week since, and we, as yet, have heard nothing from it. The second Company Howitzers left at the same time, and placed in the Third Company's charge their Rifled Howitzer. A few days ago since we exchanged one of our little brass boat howitzers for another 10 pound Parrot gun .... etc.

    Special Notes: Easy to Manufacture, Inexpensive, Reliable, and Accurate to Shoot

    One famous U.S. inventor was a former West Point graduate and ordnance officer named Robert Parker Parrott.

    Robert Parker Parrott In 1836, Parrott resigned his rank of captain and went to work for the West Point Foundry at Cold Spring, New York. This foundry was a civilian operated business and Parrott, as a superintendent, was able to dedicate some forty years perfecting a rifled cannon and a companion projectile. By 1860, he had patented a new method of attaching the reinforcing band on the breech of a gun tube. Although he was not the first to attach a band to a tube, he was the first to use a method of rotating the tube while slipping the band on hot. This rotation, while cooling, caused the band to attach itself in place uniformly rather than in one or two places as was the common method, which allowed the band to sag in place. The 10-pounder Parrott was patented in 1861 and the 20- and 30-pounder guns followed in 1861. He quickly followed up these patents by producing 6.4-, 8-, and 10-inch caliber cannons early in the war. The Army referred to these as 100, 200, and 300-pounder Parrotts respectively. By the end of the conflict the Parrott gun was being used extensively in both armies
