This is a 12 pounder iron howitzer manufactured by T. M. Brennan in Nashville. It is in excellent condition with clear markings. It was cast in 1861 with a registration number of 17. "TENN" is marked on top of the barrel. It may have been obtained by the city in 1873 to fire on patriotic occasions. Originally it was located at the Courthouse - then moved to Oakland Cemetery. It is now privately owned. Photo taken 6/19/10.
