Information: During the time of Horatio Nelson, naval cannons played a pivotal role in naval warfare. These cannons were the primary weapons used by warships to engage enemy vessels and fortifications.
In naval battles, cannons were used to engage enemy ships at various distances. Broadside firing was a common tactic, where ships would align their cannons along one side and fire a simultaneous volley at the enemy. This tactic aimed to maximize the damage to the enemy's hull and crew.
Naval cannons played a crucial role in naval engagements during Nelson's time, and the ability to effectively use and manage cannons was a key determinant of success in naval warfare. Nelson himself was known for his innovative use of cannons and his emphasis on aggressive close-quarter combat to achieve victory at sea.
