War Memorial cannons in Sullivan Ohio

We were on the way from Columbus to outside Cleveland for a family gathering when Sher reached across me with her phone in hand. I rolled down the window, and the below picture is the result. This is at the intersection of US 224 and Ohio 28.

This is one of the many displays that are part of the National War Memorial Registry. These cannons honor the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Mexican-American War, Civil War and the Spanish American War. Too bad we didn’t have time to stop.

    • I’m Pretty sure they are actually fixed fortification guns primarily for harbor defenses. Way too big for caisson transport. It was interesting that the guns are the same and they are mounted on concrete with the dates on them. Impressive
