Heavily engraved tube includes large "GAR" above breech. Resting on an antique carriage retaining much of its original yellow paint. This cannon is in working order. The Grand Army of the Republic, founded in 1866, was the largest Civil War veterans' organization, boasting a peak membership of some 400,000 former Union soldiers and sailors. The last G.A.R. member, Albert Wollson, died in 1956. The gentleman who ordered this cannon was likely former Sergeant Charles Hull (1835-1910), Co. "E", 141st Pennsylvania Infantry. Hull, like the cannon's maker, was from Athens, Pennsylvania.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
