CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Civil War re-enactors were firing their cannon at Fort D in Cape Girardeau, on Monday, September 5, hoping to give people a little glimpse of what life was like during the Civil War.

The fan favorite, however, is the cannon. One of the re-enactors said they love to get out and fire the cannon whenever they can. 

"We had fun today," Scott House, a civil war re-enactor, said. "Fourth of July rained out on us, so we wanted to get in some more practice today."

The next time the cannoniers will be out at Fort D is during the Cape Girardeau Heritage Days the first weekend in October.
