Photo of the "1779" cannon
« on: October 13, 2009, 09:47:59 PM »
"A close replica to one of the 24 pound guns used on the ship USS Constitution.

The original guns were 10 feet long and fired 24 pound iron balls. Canons of that era were usually of cast iron but sometimes bronze, and with oak carriages. Everything on the model works just as on the originals." - Jerry

Here's a photo of the cannon and associated copyright:
