BTW the trailer with the cannon on it on the shoulder of the road was found in Burgess, South Carolina and not in Georgia. Burgess is located in Horry County which Myrtle Beach is located. I thought I saw something in the not too distant past about some cannons being found in the Pee Dee River which is fairly close by. Eric said he could have received .45 cents a pound for the scrap metal amounting to about $7,000.00 dollars but realized the historical importance and sold it to a man from Arkansas for $5,000.00 as he restored civil war cannons. Eric did state the letters C. S. S. were located on the cannon and I take that as Confederate States Ship.
