Cannons to the left! Cannons to the right! Prois Pro Staffer Barb Baird found herself in the middle of a women’s cannon brigade at the North-South Skirmish Association’s annual event on Sat., May 21, at Ft. Shenandoah, Virginia. Baird, who is a correspondent for the National Shooting Sports Association, was drawn to the event because of its association with Civil War era firearms and artillery. When asked to light a cannon, she did not hesitate! Fifteen cannons fired on the line that day. She is now saving her pennies for her very own cannon. Photo by Jason Baird.
