Even though they were made popular by cartoons with toons blowing themselves up with round black ball bombs here's a short history of these cannon ball bombs.

Surprisingly in the Mid to late 1800’s these old black mortar ball bombs actually did exist in real life. They were hollow fired round iron balls full of gun powder which was set off by a internal fuse.

The french even had a version called pomegranate bombs on account of the round shape bomblettes go as far back as the fifteenth century at least that we know of historically.

Speaking of history, lets not forget the civil war either and these would make great props for civil war actors. Regardless when the fuse was lit the mortar went off when the gunpowder was ignited.

Artillerists could adjust the length of the fuse to choose the time when the round went off. Basically you would get a air burst over the enemy, showering them with shrapnel.
