      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
      like
      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.

      Cheers
