Central Park cannon found loaded with powder, ball

(London Daily Mail) An American Revolutionary War-era cannon on decorative display in Manhattan’s Central Park has been discovered to be loaded with a cannon ball – and even primed with gunpowder – during a routine cleaning.

Park workers made the discovery Friday afternoon while refurbishing one of two cannons stored at Central Park’s Ramble Shed, near the park’s 79th Street entrance.
