This is the entrance to the old campus of the University of Georgia in Athens , Georgia It's the oldest public land grant university in the United States. It was here as students where Sue and I met. Athens is less than 40 minutes from Atlanta and less than 30 minutes from my home.

The Double Cannon

Photographed - 3/18/06

What seemed like a good idea on paper. This Civil War era cannon turned out not so good in reality. Fired only once in a test against a stand of trees, the cannon failed miserably. The idea was a chain attached to the two cannon balls would act like a sickle cutting down the enemy in their tracks. Both barrels couldn't be timed to fire at the same time, The result was one projectile pulled the other wildly off to one side almost killing the observers, It now resides at the City Hall.
