8lb. Canon

As one enters Fort Morgan, just out side of Orange Beach, Alabama, this is one of the first things you will see. This is an excellent historical place, that has served in four American Wars, as a shore defense station, and was even modified during WWI with its own military airport; that was used in both WWI and WWII.

  1. Thanks for this post. In an earlier photo on a fortress in Malacca, there was also a canon and now I regretted that I did not pay attention to it when I was there…:-)

    1. I went into some of the bunkers there, some were open to the public. The thing is here is that it has been used from the 1700’s until the 1950’s, one of the longest used forts in history.
      I have a shot of some of the older furniture there too. I am going to look for your post!
