Location Recovered: Lake Erie area

Description:Very cool breech end of a small cannon. Frag has the cascabel and some surface detailing. Broke right along the vent. In one picture I have shown it with a British one pounder shot mounted in it. Its not included but intended rather to show scale. In my estimation this was either a one pounder or a swivel gun. I wouldn't want to have been on the crew firing this gun when she blew. It looks non dug so someone picked up the pieces after and kept this, probably the coolest frag from the aftermath.
