Many times I and others wondered "Where was the gun". Well I for one finally found out.It was in 1777,during the war with England.American General Heath had the bad luck of running into "The Gun"It was placed in the south-east end of what would be Woodlawn Cemetery.If you knew congrats.For me it always was a wonder.BTW,I found this out in a GREAT book by Stephen DeVillo
