A “Quaker gun” is a deception tactic that was common in warfare during the 18th and 19th centuries wherein defending soldiers would paint logs black to give the illusion that they were real cannons. The name is derived from the nickname for the Religious Society of Friends (or “Quakers”) and their religious opposition to war and violence.
