BATTLE ON THE MONONGAHELA 1755
18-24 Pounder Cannon,
(1 pc) us$32
The 24-pounder was a common naval gun.
It was the preferred "attacking" siege gun, as it hit hard,
and the gun weight was still manageable.
The 18-pounder was the preferred "defensive" siege gun,
similar in size with nearly the same range as a 24-pounder,
but it saved on gun powder, which was nearly always a huge concern for whoever was being besieged.
The British had two 18-pounders at Fort William Henry,
six more at Fort Edward. During the siege of Fort William Henry,
the two 18-pounders “burst” from over firing.
Many of the larger mid- and late18th century ships were furnished with a mix of 24-pounders
(middle deck)and 32-pounders (lower deck) with lighter guns on the upper deck.
