'American Restoration' Puts American Civil War Cannon Back In Action (VIDEO)

Here's a tip for anyone standing next to a cannon: If someone looks like they might be about to fire it, stand way back.

Not everyone did that on "American Restoration" (Wed., 10 p.m. EST on History), and so there were some frayed nerves by the end of Wednesday night's episode

Rick Dale and his crew had restored a 19th-century cannon, only to discover that "it actually came from the Civil War." After the guys had finished with it, the owner said she'd never seen the cannon look so good.

She asked if they could fire it. So they did and she nearly jumped out of her skin.

"American Restoration" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. EST on History.
