IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE:

Huge thanks to The New Tennessee State Museum. They just opened, and when I rolled up in with a camera they were incredibly gracious and open minded. They're trying to figure out twitter and I'd like to help them. Click here to tweet them and say thank you on my behalf: http://bit.ly/2V2aDEj. It will make them happy and increase the odds that they'll work with me on a future project involving history.

Preston Bain owns www.nashvillerelics.com and found the "Whitworth hex drop". He sells actual artifacts from the US Civil War out of Brentwood, TN.

Mike Potucek (www.ArtisticOutdoorLighting.com) is the gentleman who re-engineered and created the replica Whitworth Cannon.

The thought is it my efforts making videos will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for my kids college education. Until then if you appreciate what you've learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!
