1941: The Swamp Angel

Oh, how the citizens of Charleston wanted that Parrot Gun which Trenton historians saved from the junk yard! This Graphic and article are from my "CIVIL WAR" folder in the Hamilton Library's Local History Collection. The Charlestonians took the position that since the big gun was on Rebel ground, and since the city of Charleston was bombarded by the huge gun, it belonged in their historical repositories. Sorry, Charleston, it's ours!
