Towson, Maryland generally doesn't have a whole lot going for it in terms of unique attractions, but the area around its courthouse does have a few interesting antiques, statues, and monuments kicking around. This cannon, captured at Manila in 1898 (I have no idea why a cannon was captured in the Philippines the year before the Philippine-American War) and donated by the U.S. government to Towson a few years later, is one such feature.
Oooooh I love this view of it too
I just love these cannons!
We captured it from the Spanish, who owned the Philippines in 1898. There's others at Annapolis.
