12 pounder-circa 1750This cannon was most likely acquired by an American private armed vessel during the Revolutionary War or the War of 1812. It was uncovered in the 1980's by a developer in front of a warehouse in the Fells Point area of Baltimore, MD. A common practice of the day was to use condemned cannons as ballast and or bollards on piers. Many were used as corner posts on warehouses to prevent wagon wheel hubs from damaging the corners of brick building.
