Squint Shot 011712
I've been going back through various photographs taken over the last six months or so and am going to post these as squint shots. Today and tomorrow's shots will be about the cannon that be found at the Greenwood cemetery. If you drive north on Cemetery road from Grand River avenue, go to the second entrance to the cemetery which will get you to the original location, turn right into the area and head pretty much straight away, the cannon will be in front of you.Today's shot shows one side of this cannon, dedicated May 30, 1898. It was a decommissioned weapon by the government and offered to anyone wishing to display it. The G.A.R. (Grand Army of the Republic) made it a project to get this cannon delivered to the village and then created a monument in the cemetery.
