What: Cannon Unveiling Event
Where: St. Augustine Lighthouse
When: Friday, November 18th, 2011

Join us for this premier museum event. On Friday evening we will be revealing to the public for the first time the two cleaned cannons recovered from the late 18th century Storm Wreck. One of these guns, a carronade manufactured by the Carron Iron Works in Falkirk, Scotland, featured a year which has helped us narrow the date of the shipwreck.
