This is an original sponge cover for a 24# Civil War cannon. This is what covered up the cleaning sponge of a 24# size cannon with the bore diameter of 5.68 inches. The cannoneer used the sponge to clean out the bore of the cannon after it was fired. This cover was placed on the sponge to keep it clean when it was in use. It is made of tarred canvas and has the original rope tightener present at the bottom of the cover. The canvas has dried and stiffened over the years and it has some splits as you can see and it is priced accordingly. This is a perfect piece of Civil War artillery history.
