I have been wanting to model a cannon for a while and I finally decided to do it after a recent trip and tour of the battlefield of Gettysburg, Pa. After modeling the cannon I decided to put it in a scene. The atmosphere is inspired by the foggy, mizzley weather the day I toured the battlefield. The flag is (as far as I could find) the US (Union) flag of the time period of the battle of Gettysburg. Though I believe that many of the various regiments had their own versions of the Stars and Stripes.
Though I am basically finished I would love some comments and constructive criticism.
