Beachgoers found two Civil-War-era cannonballs on the edge of Folly Beach, uncovered by Hurricane Dorian and laying in the sand. This isn’t the first time Civil War cannonballs have been found on Folly Beach. Sixteen civil war cannonballs were found in the same location, after Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

Do we know anything about caliber, shape of projectile, and shot/shell? (Presuming shell, but it's not a given). Couldn't see much detail in the news video.
