Did You Know?

Replica cannon of the type made at Hopewell during the revolution.

Early in the American Revolution, colonial ordnance inspector Daniel Joy conducted a sort of school for Pennsylvania ironmasters on the proper method of casting cannon. As a result, in 1776-77 approximately 100 "great guns" were cast at Hopewell Furnace and accepted by the Continental Navy.
