Ever wonder how Civil War cannons were fired? The Fort Washington Guard in period uniforms will demonstrate and explain the procedures used during the muzzle-loading era of American Artillery. The park has two artillery pieces, a 6-pound field gun and a 12-pound mountain howitzer.
The cannon is fired on the hour at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm. Each demonstration takes about 15 minutes. $10.00 to enter park, program free.
