August 12, 1968 - Ft. Henry gets new cannon
Updated: Monday, August 12 2013, 06:26 AM EDT
On this day back in 1968... A ceremony for the arrival of a brand new cannon at Fort Henry.
On the fourth of July the year before.. workers there had trouble getting the old cannon to work.
They replaced it with a new one... that also had some trouble.
Eventually it did work.
You can still check this out today.. there are tours on the hour every day until 4 p-m.
