Robert,

The sustained rate of fire for a howitzer, especially one assigned to a foot/horse artillery company/battery, was undoubtedly one round per minute. With one employed for siege operations of heavier caliber it could have been longer. The maximum rate would be as fast as the gun crew could load and fire.

Sincerely,
K
