I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of one of those - though I understand it was nearly as dangerous to be firing them. I just heard on the news that someone has just given back a cannon that they stole 30 years ago. The mind boggles!

Neat old cannon. We've done fishing tournaments not that far from the Mackinac Bridge, never have gone to the island tho. That's on my bucket list of things to do.

KA BOOM! I want to hear it fire.. I love old forts and old cannons

Old cannon on wooden wheels. Must be very heavy and difficult to move around.
