Revolutionary War canon unearthed in Gloucester County park

They used ground penetrating radar to find it - pretty cool find

BOOM BABY! Sorry I couldn't resist. That is an awesome find. The fact that they know it is one of 2 guns that blew up on those specific dates is amazing.

Can't even imagine one of those things actually blowing up but it's an amazing find! That's a real good story Tony. It shows us that there's stuff down there that tells a story of the past. I would love to be on a dig like that one!

Oh wow these might have been American solders who died when this cannon blow up!


The ground-penetrating radar "revealed a substantial piece of breached American cannon," Janofsky said. "What is interesting about this find is that we know during the battle, an American cannon experienced a breech failure, killing 12."

"We frequently remember the high number of Hessian casualties, but forget 14 American soldiers died in that battle," she said. "This is a substantial find."
