Battlefield cannon damaged

Antietam National Battlefield officials are offering a reward for information leading to arrest of the person responsible for damaging part of a historic cannon.

Park rangers said the cannon was damaged sometime between 5 p.m. Sept. 18 and 8 a.m. Sept. 19 at the main entrance to the park, the intersection of Md. 65 and Dunker Church Road. Rangers believe the vehicle involved may be maroon with damage to one of its sides, and that it may be a Buick, Ranger Todd Stanton said.

The cannon carriage that was damaged was valued at $10,000. The carriage was made sometime between 1950 and 1953, and it was holding a historic cannon tube, Stanton said. The tube was not damaged.

Rangers ask that anyone with information about the incident call Stanton or Chief Ranger Ed Wenschhof at 301-432-2243.
