BC: THE END
FC: The Civil War By: Chase Kuehl
2: MINIE BALL During the Civil War the North and South used many different kinds of ammunition.The minie ball was created by Captain Claude Etienne Minie.
3: The minie ball was smaller around than the barrel of the gun which made loading faster and easier.
4: GATLING GUN This gun was created by Richard J. Gatling.The overall length of the gun was 36 inches with 11.5 inch barrels.
5: HENRY RIFLE This gun was designed by B. Tyler Henry.It has a .44 caliber cartridge.
6: The minie ball made loading guns faster and easier. The Henry Rifle had a bigger caliber which would do more damage. The Gatling gun wasn't used much in the Civil War but it did well with crowds of people.
7: The minie ball had a large effect in the Civil War because it did a lot of damage. The Henry Rifle had a small effect because there was many other brands of rifles. The Gatling gun had very little effect because it wasn't used much.
8: Both the North and South benefited from the minie ball. Both the North and South benefited from the henry rifle. Both the north and south benefited fro the Gatling gun. . | m the henry rifle.
9: If the minie ball wasn't created i don't think the war would have been so brutal and gory. If the henry rifle wasn't created it probably wouldn't of changed the outcome of the war very much. If the Gatling gun wasn't created it wouldn't of had a big affect in the war.
10: Life probably wouldn't be different without any of these things.
11: The minie ball is no longer used because we have better bullets. The henry rifle is still around but i don't think any one uses them accept for show. The Gatling gun is still around but it isn't in use by any one.
