' Both cannons at Oak Hill Cemetery (Evansville, Indiana) have been restored and returned to the Civil War grave site section! One was restored some time back, but the other one was just brought back looking great this month.
Cemetery Superintendent Chris Cooke has gotten both of these cannons back in good shape again (actually, excellent shape). Chris said there is still a lot of work to do to get the cannons set-up like he wants them for next years 150th. Anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War.
