Bolton in Warren County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The barrel and the firing mechanism of this 4.7 inch cannon were made at the Northwestern Ordnance Company, while the carriage was made at Rock Island Arsenal. According to the records at the Watervliet Arsenal, only 93 cannons of this type were built, and were the most modern artillery pieces of the time when designed in 1906. This cannon was built in 1918, and came to the town of Bolton in the mid 1930s. The cannon is the gift of the Morabito family, Joseph, JoAnn, and John, in memory of Doris French Morabito.
