    Improvement In Arrow Projectiles For Ordnance 1865

    What a wacky idea, shooting arrows out of a cannon. I bought this patent model at a gun show last saturday and it came with the original patent office tag and a copy of the patent. Better yet my wife bought it for my Christmas present.Name:  2020-11-24_130053.jpg

    Been done. U.S. Army flechette round has thousands of little tiny arrows.

    ​So! What would it be used for? I don't see where it would be of any use against infantry, grape shot and canister would be more affective .

    It's volume -- carpets a large area with projectiles. Many many many many more than the modes you're suggesting. They're tiny little critters, but extremely disconcerting when passing through one's anatomy.

    That was my thought.
    I remember reading they were used to cut rigging and some used to send lines accross rivers or fort walls.

    Navy used I would bet.

    But during the Civil War most if not all ships were steam powered. No rigging.
    It would however put a nice hole in the side of a ship.
