Musket & Carronade Weekend

July 28 - July 29

Musket Carronade Firings at Put in Bay Ohio

Park Rangers and volunteers will demonstrate firing black powder muskets and the Park’s carronade throughout the day. Ranger programs will cover the nuances of the 1812 military uniform, the proper handling of black powder and the steps to firing a musket. The carronade, a small gun like those used on board the US Brig Lawrence and US Brig Niagara, will be fired by the Park’s Gun Crew. The Carronade program will discuss the proper steps in firing the short range gun and its limitation during the Battle of Lake Erie. Musket firing demonstrations will take place at 11 am, 1, 3, and 5 pm. Carronade demonstrations will be given at noon, 2, and 4 pm.
