Once a parallel was dug, troops could move artillery forward and place cannon in position to batter the ememy garrison. Greene's six-pounders (guns firing six pound cannon balls) were placed here on platforms that sat on earthen fortificatons about 20 feet high and allowed artillerists to fire directly into the Star Fort. These guns were manned by specially trained crews.
