Johnny Reb Toy Cannon

Just in time for Christmas! The Remco Johnny Reb Cannon was introduced during the Civil War Centennial in 1961. Over 31 inches long it fired plastic cannonballs up to 35 feet when the lanyard was pulled. The cannon came with six plastic cannon balls, ramrod and a Rebel flag.Only $11.98! 

Produced at a time when playing war, shooting toy guns and remembering Southern heroes was not considered politically incorrect.
