David -

I agree. I've taken the liberty of cross-posting your note to the MS CW Message Board.

My implied question is, Did "Rattler" fire that particular round?

To satisfy your and my concerns, I'd like to think the Church wall holds a FRAGMENT of the case of a 24-pound shrapnel shell, but I hope that some artillery expert can confirm or deny my guess.
