Civil War ammo


A “shot,” used in a small cannon, was found recently at the intersection of Leathersville Road and Jones-Martin Road by Patricia Hine. The 1.5-pound shot, with a circumference of 7.5 inches, is believed to date back to the Civil War. Pictured with the shot are Dianne Poteat (l), genealogy librarian at the Lincoln County Library, and Carrie Hine.
