Confederate "Quaker Guns"
This photograph was taken after the Battle of Bull Run, following the Confederates' evacuation in March, 1862 . When faced with a shortage of artillery pieces, Southern defenders frequently used logs painted black on the "firing" end to create the illusion of a strongly held Confederate position. The Union forces nicknamed them "Quaker guns."
