    The Hot-Shot Furnace at Fort Morgan, Alabama


Mike points to the opening from which the heated shot are dispensed. Iron bars or formed channel-iron runners line up the solid shot to be heated. They are at a slight pitch, about 3 degrees, so they roll down toward the indicated opening. You can bet that the Confederate artillerymen used these cherry-red shot to start fires on some of Admiral Farragut`s ships as they ran by, two abreast, during the forced passage between Fort Morgan and Fort Gaines at the start of the Battle of Mobile Bay in 1864.
