Does anyone know anything about the 5 or 6 guns placed around Glen Is. park? They are all Civil War British castings except for a small Parrot rifle. My guess is they came from a Southern coastal fort.
Fort Slocum is just across the water from the park where all the buildings have been demolished, only the Endicott mortar pits and a 15" Rodman remain.
