What's the big deal about cannons?

Nowadays, cannon and other forms of artillery from the 1700s and 1800s are nothing more than quaint noise-makers.  We see them only in the movies and on TV, or at occasional demonstrations at historic sites.  In their day, cannons were the most powerful, far-reaching and fearsome weapons available...

Cultures of Acadiana This site is a result of ongoing study by the
Louisiana Studies (Sociology) classes of Carencro High School
of the cultures of Acadiana.  Acadiana is a 13 parish
(Note to non-Louisianians: our parishes are the same things
as your counties) area in south Louisiana where French exiles
from Nova Scotia (known to them as Acadia) settled after their
deportation by the British in 1755.  The descendents of those exiles
are now known as Cajuns (a variation of the name "Acadians").
The town of Carencro developed from one of the earliest Cajun
