11" CIVIL WAR UNION ARTILLERY CANNON BALL
This isn't the largest cannon ball fired into Vicksburg by the invading horde, but it's close (13" was the largest in diameter). It weighs about 150 pounds, and is fused, thus it is classified as a shell or a cased shot, depending upon whether or not it has thin or thick walls and does or does not contain lead or iron shot. $650, first floor.
