Lunch Bite – British Military Wall Gun
Fri Jan 17, 12:30pm–1pm
Presented by: Anderson House & The American Revolution Institute
Join History and Education Associate Evan Phifer for a discussion of a Revolutionary War-period British military wall gun and its unique role in eighteenth-century warfare. With an overall length of more than six feet, a weight exceeding thirty-five pounds and a .98-caliber bore that fired a lead ball up to a mile, the wall gun was intended as a fixed weapon in the defense of fortifications during siege warfare.
The presentation will last approximately 30 minutes with time afterwards for up-close viewing of the gun.
