One of the last-known cannons used by U.S. General William Tecumseh Sherman during the Battle of Shiloh and the famous March to the Sea.

The cannon is on display occasionally in Veteran’s Square in downtown Lancaster. It often travels to regional fairs, festivals, and events with The Sons of Union Veterans, William McKinley Camp.

Sherman Trail: Used by General Sherman’s army during the Battle of Shiloh and during the March to the sea. Donated to Lancaster by General Sherman for the local GAR. In the 1960s, the townspeople donated it to have it restored (also the plaque for Medal of Honor winners from the Civil War). The first medal winner was from Lancaster, Jacob Parrott.
