This site has lots of links on each page you go to from this index page. The photography is excellent, and some historical information is given. I didn't see much in the way of measurements on the cannons, other than weight marks explained. Still, there's more in the way of explanation than many other "cannon" sites.

Great reference!

I'll add it to the REFERENCES list - sometime this weekend - I'm in the middle of building a linen cabinet, next is the vanity then tile floor. Working weekend - but I'm working for my wife and I.

The Green Island cannon sure raises a lot of questions, no trunnions. Maybe someone started to build it and didn't get around to putting the trunnions on.

cannonmn, another great history link!!!! I enjoyed every bit of it, thanks for sharing. i knew urine was collected by the saltpeter collectors, but what i didn't know was that they tasted the dirt before digging :eek: :eek: :eek:............ i have some horses and a barn, plus an old outhouse by the cabin in the woods. even have a few antique kettles for boiling............... might be a fun experiment :p

Cannonmn, We agree with Lance; it's a great link. We believe that you have only 1/2 a cannon there on the one which is has a 6" bore with sides 5" thick and was rolling in the surf for years and years and recently mounted in a wooden crib mount.


Lance, It's all well and good that you have all these resources which would make a night soil collector take notice, but what everyone here wants to know, member and guest alike, is WILL YOU BE TASTING THE SOIL??? [/color] He, he, he, he............. :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

Your FRIENDS at Seacoast Artillery,

Tracy and Mike
