Description: Several large piles of cannonballs in pyramid formation in an open field. Several multi-level brick buildings, including a stable, are in the background. The photographer wrote "Arsenal during Civil War" on the front of the photograph, but the picture was taken in 1866 a year after the war's conclusion.
