Re: [WarOf1812] artillery question

I was wondering if any of you cannon cockers knew about the 1812 US
process of loading Hot Shot. I found this from a civil war manual. Sound
it could be the same. Any help would be great .
Exactly like the British procedure of loading hot shot. It was by using this
method that the Royal Artillery destroyed the gunboat 'Carolina' before the
battle of New Orleans.
