8. Civil War Cannon
Near the marker, and pointing out over Hanover Street, is this one of a kind 12-pdr Wrought Iron Napoleon. Produced by Phoenix Iron Works in 1863 using the same construction techniques as the more familiar 3-inch Ordnance Rifle. However this gun fired 12-pdr smoothbore ammunition like that used in bronze 12-pdr Napoleons. Likely this weapon was an experimental type.
