Another bit of oddness scanned from the Firearms Curiosa for your amusement.



Behold! The Ordnance Plow:

In case you can't make out the description, it reads;

The ordnance plow . . . a means of defense in repelling surprises and skirmishing attacks on those engaged in a peaceful avocation it is unrivaled . . . The share serves to anchor it firmly into the ground." Just unharness the team and shoot.

IT'S JUST THAT SIMPLE!

Wouldn't the draft team, oh, I don't know, be right in front of the plow? Once you unharness the critters ya gotta move them out of the way, then run back and aim the bloody thing at whatever skirmishing surprises are charging at you. Guess it was a fun way to get rid of any pesky stumps still in the field or send a message to those darn rabbits. Especially that troublemaker Peter.


"What you plantin' dis yar, Brother French?"
"Corn and hot lead, Brother Fancher."

 
Well, the guys did get a patent for their invention in 1862, so no one else can put a musket cannon on their plow without their say-so. I believe there was more than one shot of whiskey responsible for this plan.
