Three Civil War Cannons Pulled from River

From the October 1, 2015, Discovery News by Elizabeth Palermo, Livescience.

It took about 30 minutes to raise each one and the cannons are in surprisingly good shape, "ready to rock and roll," said Jonathan Leader, South Carolina's state archaeologist.

Receding e\waters during a drought several years ago left the 7-inch Brooke rifle exposed and a bit corroded as a result.
