This bronze cannon was made at Douai France in 1751, by Berenger the great gun manufacturer, for the House of the Bourbons. After many travels and vicissitudes, it was discovered mounted in defence of Fort Morro Santiago, Cuba. Upon the surrender of Santiago, it passed into the possession of the United States and was taken to Governors Island N.Y. It was assigned by the Secretary of War to Hagerstown and has been mounted here to commemorate the patriotism and courage of all the volunteers from Washington County who entered the Army and Navy of the U.S. in the American - Spanish War, 1897-1898.
