A Battery of "Quaker Guns"
In order to convince the enemy the army had more cannon than they possessed, troops made imitation cannon of big logs. At a distance these resembled a battery of artillery, deceiving the enemy. This mock or "Quaker" battery was made by the 79th New York, at Seabrook Point, Port Royal Island, South Carolina, in December, 1861.
