Use the two links below to see photos and information on the cannon that has been in Petoskey's Pennsylvania Park since 1905. It was used in combat during three of the most important and famous U.S. Navy battles of the Civil War. Now it is in need of preservation; it is showing its age at 155 years old. As the plaque on the cannon says:
"Forevermore a silent reminder to the rising generations of the glorious deeds of our Navy during the fierce conflict in which the God of Battle watched over our nation and in which this gun effectively spoke for liberty and a untied country."
Now it's our turn to commit to save this national treasure. Please give generously.
