  • A limber is a two-wheeled cart designed to support the trail of an artillery piece, or the stock of a field carriage such as a caisson or traveling forge, allowing it to be towed. The trail is the hinder end of the stock of a gun-carriage, which rests or slides on the ground when the carriage is unlimbered.1

    A caisson is a two-wheeled cart designed to carry artillery ammunition.2 The British term was "ammunition wagon". Caissons are used to bear the casket of the deceased in some state and military funerals in certain Western cultures, including the United States.
