Inscription. It is believed that these two 12-pound British naval cannons were transported to Charles Town during the American Revolution (1775-1783). During the 19th century they stood vertically with their muzzles in the ground on Ann Street — near the present-day Charleston Visitor Center. The cannons were relocated to the Powder Magazine yard in 1904.
