Fort Wood Cannons Get Moved

More cannons were moved, but this time, from the Fort Wood neighborhood.

These bigger guns are located at the Holsclaw Offices. The two 30-Pounders got their name from the actual weight of the cannonballs. The barrels were removed first, each weighed 4300 pounds. The carriages were removed also.

Work finished on the cannons at Patten House, and are now back in place.
