Our Cannon

Please help save our local history! 

This cannon sits across the street from the City Post Office. In March of 1886 it was used to celebrate the opening of the Falmouth Bridge. That same year, the cannon was used in a salute for President Cleveland by our local militia who arranged to fire Twenty-One guns in honor of the new President. Fast forward to today, the cannon’s carriage is in an advanced deteriorated state after standing as a proud sentinel and symbol of our City’s remarkable history for well over a hundred years. This cannon should be restored to its original splendor and have the carriage replaced with an accurate reproduction of the type used by this model 1841 cannon.  

We need your help! The Fredericksburg Guard Association, an IRS recognized veteran’s association is taking donations to insure that it can be preserved and remain a living part of our history for years to come.

We have raised the amounts needed to Save Our Cannon!

Thank you for helping us
